    Just got these dropped off for restorations, one of my favorites things bringing the old stuff back to life. These trulines are all uncut 5Xs, 36s, LM9 etc

    Jessie, which 5X rod did you score? I just recently acquired full length green 4X and 5X blanks. There's an old dark red 36, a rare D8H purple, and matching 36 purple all in the batch Bill has.
