No, but I have a Marco "Marauder" 16 1/2-footer with put-in glass-to-glass joints. The blank is about 2" wide where the handle meets it. A sort of distant, unrefined cousin of your rod. I bought it as a sort of "ring-up" pole, and for casting a rather long plumbing-up rig i'd come up with.
What do you use your Zephyrene for, and what length is it?

Ah. Just out of curiosity, what did it sell for?

Struth, the rings alone are probably worth that! (The price, not the postage).
I hope there's either a Marco collector/curator out there who bagged it, or someone with a special job for it to do.

Ouch! Still, I have a similar glass Rodrill I haven't used yet, so I mustn't get all covetous but wish the purchaser much luck with it.
