Bamboo Rod Give Away Question

Bamboo Rod Give Away Question

Years ago a friend gave me a South Bend 359. This is not a valuable collector's rod as they were mass produced. The rod is straight and in good working order with two tips, one 6 inches shorter than the other. The finish on the bamboo rod is fantastic, the wraps are deteriorating and the cork is terribly abused. The real seat works but is very cheapo.

It sat in my basement for 10 years until this Thanksgiving when I decided to get rid of some of my old stuff, and as a result I am giving the rod awayhopefully to someone who loves bamboo rods and will take the time to rebuild this rod, make it beautiful, and use it.

I'll give the rod to the first person to post (on this page, not Facebook) the answer to this question. "The Aquinnah Rod Company produced only one rod model. What was the name of this rod?" (Hint: The answer is in Gear Guide 2012.)
