Martinez & Bird "Nacked" Rod

Post by Galician » Tue Jun 11, 2019 5:23 pm

Sorting thru some of my old Rods I came across a Martinez & Bird Rod (Model not noted on Rod) that had been stripped of of all its guides and varnish. It looks a very sound Rod and I now wish to restore it, its a 3 piece, total length 11'3" of gorgeous split cane, individual measurements: Butt 49 1/2", Mid 39 1/2" and Tip 47". I am now looking for both a potential model name and a ringing guide for each individual length.

Hopefully some of our members can help me for which I will be very grateful.
