The rod is gold in color with agate guides. The decal is missing a part and you can only read ...10T and then 6-1/2' light action, 1/4 - 1/2 oz. lures, 4 - 10 lb. line. There is another decal that only says ...TE and under that ...ES.

I bought the rod new March 22, 1965 and since I got out of the Army 28 February 1965 it must have been one of my first purchases.

Also purchased a Garcia Mitchell 300 reel with the rod.

The tip agate guide cracked so I replaced it with a stainless steel tip although I still have the cracked agate tip.

What is the missing numbers for the rod?

Thank you for your help.

Hello Ed,

Welcome to the group! Your story is quite interesting. Your rod is most likely a Model 2110-T, 6'6" light action rod. 4 thru 10 lb. test, 1/4 thru 1/2 oz. lures. The line guide wrappings were either gold or bronze in color. The agate gudes were either black or colorless. Black was most common. Thanks for your post. Cheers!

Regards, Scott

Thanks, Scott, for your information. The agates are colorless and the wrappings are gold. I am going to try and attach a photo. I tried several shots but they all seem to come across as huge blow-ups and I'm not sure how to reduce their size.

Do you think it worthwhile to attach a new agate tip? When I cracked the original I thought I was being a bit hard on my rods, banging them on docks, boats, etc. and if I put another agate tip on I would probably do damage to that one also. Hence, the stainless tip. However as I have gotten older and slower I might be more careful.

Thank you again for your help.

Ed
