Hi. Can anyone tell me if these have any value. It seems like rods that have wood handles aren’t very desirable and aren’t worth much. One rod is 10’

"broom handles"....

they don't command the prices that a d8 will huh?

Which is good because you can strip the wood and ferrule off,

epoxy on a 24" handle of fiberglass tube,

build that and have 2 very bitchin sticks to add to the herd......no guilt. :)

The ferrule is at the handle. So they are 2 piece connection is at the handle.
Ah, I see now. Can’t tell you a price, but if they were mine I’d get them rewrapped with new hardware and built with new handles—and fish the hell out of them.

Put a reel on them, go down to a breakwater and cast them. If you like the action keep them.
