Long story short, one of my neighbors recently passed away. Found out that there were a few rods tucked away in a shed , so I went to take a look. I found three custom made rods, two were a matched set of Calstar 196-6, one with a Penn 505 Jigmaster and another with a smaller Penn, i think it was a 100 squidder? Third rod not sure what it was, but all three were custom cork grip rods, guides were the basic boat guides, a normal amount of corrosion for probably sitting for a very long time. The woman who passed what mid 60's, and these rods were made for her father, so probably older. Reels seemed to spin just fine for being covered in probably 20 plus years of dirt, termite shit and cobwebs.

The son said to come up with a value if i want them prior to the estate sale. What do you all think?
