Hi, I've just finished the light restoration of this Lee of Redditch Superlite rod. I purchased this from the first owner who bought it in the early 60's, and used it through to the 70's. It has a cork handle with a reel seating I've not seen before, bottom , middle and the lower part of the top section are Spanish reed I think, and the top two thirds of the top section are split cane. There is a splice about a foot from the end of the middle section, and another one in the top section where the split cane is let in. The rod is finished in a dark brown lacquer, the whippings are in that stripey green and black and edged with gold. In all a very attractive rod, looks good for roaching on the GU and the Gade.

Coincidentally I have today been using a Superlite today when perch fishing on the South Yorkshire Navigation.Its only the second time I have ever had this rod out the last time being about 2 years ago.My Superlite has standard reel fittings but in every other respect it's identical to yours.I did not realise until I used the rod today how prominent the set was in the spliced split cane tip section so I have put it in a jig and attempted the straighten it using a hair dryer.I will leave it a few days to see if it works.I think I paid £10 for mine.
