What were the factory lengths of the powermaster? I know about the 7' 6" and 8' something. Were there others?

Hey Tom, I was still in junior high school when Roddy went out of business. I believe that was 1966.

Actually Jerry started a low end brand for the"folks" called Master Tackle many years ago.Some years back he bought Penn and moved some of the lower end reels like the 209 and 500s to China.He then sold it and continued with Master brand and some new Roddy grafite rods until his passing a couple month ago.I had lunch with him every Monday until his passing.My son is running the Master biz at this time.My son and I had been putting together a nice selection of vintage Roddys from fly rods to unlimited trolling Rod.Many BRs and BHs.FWIW.Tom
