Hey Mike, what do u have in heavy 7' & or 8' kennedy fishers? anything like a HTB 28 ?
I had a whole pile of pristine 919H's, 50-120lb., sold them to a boat owners/Captains
at Point Loma Sportfishing, Irv Grisbeck for one...Those were the last heavy 7' ones I had. I have a 528, I'm stripping from original. It needs repainting of the surface hard Urethane, so got a lot of work to do. It will be expensive when I'm finished. I may talk about it here when it's refinished, ready for wrapping, to see if any of my customers are interested in buying it, and what me to wrap it in thier colors and choice of guides.
I'm not familiar with the HB 28? Only the really old 60-70's blanks, like the 528, 919, 913, 820, 840 and so on. Ahh, Hermosa TAckle box....

the 1 i had felt really close to a good sabre 670h & there was so much glass in the butt u could only get your little finger up 2 the 1st joint in.Yeh the HTB28 (hermosa tackle box) was a wahoo heavy bait stick, big butt like but not quite as big like a 540. i think mayb only 25 where ever made, i got mine from dave raider b4 it got ripped off out the wheel house of the condor 1 night.

at any rate mike if u do have any heavy 7'ers i'd b inyerested in them ed
No, sorry nothing heavy in 7', just s sturdy dark red custom DH 5X7'.
Fished 30-40lb. All Fuji SIC guides on it but it's not like a D7 or VBG or TNT.

It is for sale! Pics on request.

Ooopps. I forgot! I do have a LH7 green glass with original cork and Varmac seat, Super good shape. It is stripped and I will be rewrapping it soon. It's in the work-backed-up line. The guy I was to wrap it for, we found him an XR7, so he wanted that, and left me this rod. I wrapped that one, he left me this LH7 as a deposit....I forgot about it. I should get to it when I catch up on work. Maybe in April-May.
