Time to pick the brains of the all knowing Mitchell Mates, :sSig_youtheman:

I picked up this rod along with a 510. It is 6' 8" with 7 guides. Has the Garcia butt cap. Any ideas on the model, action? It feels pretty stout. Longest and heaviest rod I own. As you can see the screw that holds the butt end of the reel seat is out and inside the end. Any ideas how to reattach?

Thanks

Hey ffwayne,

First, please allow me to say in a friendly and supportive way, your title is open-ended/ambiguous. It's like asking for help understanding the universe. The software of this forum does not enable title edits by the poster, at least at a much later time - please understand this is not a negative about this wonderful forum, but rather something to be aware of. Were you able to edit, one might suggest including "510" or "forked foot" in the title to invite comment from those who have such reels/rods.

Ted, can you help? Or ffwayne, should you try a repost?

"Those" (as in forked-foot owners) do not include me, but looking at the wrapping of your rod, it does not appear to match production Garcia (as far as I can tell). It's possibly a custom re-wrap.

Warm regards,

John

P.S. Here's some Garcia content, that may possibly help identify your rod.
