Braemar series of non impregnated rods?

Post by Liphook » Tue Aug 06, 2019 3:25 pm

I've just acquired an 8ft Sharpes Braemar spinning rod. It's not impregnated but varnished. Can anybody date this or tell me any more about them? I know they did a series of fly and spinning rods with the Braemar label. Presumably they were before the impregnation process was developed/perfected? I wish I had asked even more questions when I had my Saturday job at Seaforth Rd in the early 90s :roll:

I have a catalogue from 1969 which still lists 11 various non impregnated fly rods but the Braemar is no longer listed. I read a trade catalogue a few years ago and in the Sharpes listings they offered most of their well known rods in either impregnated or none impregnated form.
