    Hi everyone, I just got this rod from my friend as gift. He said it was Truline rod but I'm not familiar with Truline blank. Heard that Truline is one of quality rod but never used it before. I'm thinking to rebuild it and I did remove the cork tape and just saw the word : " Epoxy " . The length of rod is 8'3". Hope someone can help me to find out the rod ID. I appreciate it.

    Originally Roddy were a fairly light colored glass. The Roddy you have is a later version. Original Trulines are in between the two Roddys. The best way for you to see it is to look at some rods from a known source. Or you could have grown up in the 60's.

    Nhan, are you sure you want to know? Are you ready to be initiated into the cult of Truline? Many go in and they never are the same again. Like Moses' countenance was forever changed after the burning bush. Truline does that to a man. Beware.

    I'm not a Truline fan. Just wanted to know how to identify it. I'm learning everyday. :)
