Thin walled as per butt pic.

One piece, unless extended under the grip. But don’t believe so. Buddy thought it might have been a Kennedy Fisher. But it’s not the glass I’m used to seeing for KF.

When your looking for Kennedy Fisher everything looks like a KF. Conolon looks the least like KF. Silaflex looks the most like it. Good luck!

I don't think it's a Conolon.Probably Silaflex or JKF.The JKF had two colors of blank,one was a chocolate color used on the old Stanley Andrews Ram Rods and then one color like you have.Are there small gold flakes in the glass ?

I had a rod a couple of years ago that looked very similar, same color, thin walled and very distinct lines going around the blank very close together just like the pictures of your rod. It was marked Conolon or Garcia Conolon. That may be what you have.

No gold flakes. And I’ve heard about the second JKF color.... just haven’t been able to find a pic of one for comparison.
