In the middle of my thread whining about my 4 1/2' Sage, I mentioned a couple rods I made up long ago. So I went out to the garage and there was the Phiilipson 3M squirreled away. Marked as a BK70, a dark brown blank, made it up in 1975(?). I had put a gold&bronze Featherweight seat on it and Gold Windings. Just for the heck of it I snow cast it a bit & it felt really good!! Flexes all the way downto the cork,and casting 50' no problem. The line isn't marked but looks like a 5 weight, I'm going to try a 4 on it when(if) it ever warms up. It's 7'. Anybody out there have one, or have some info. on them??? I searched but didn't find much. THANKS!!!!! Oh yeah, the other rod I made was a Lamiglass. Long time ago I was fishing in front of Yellowstone Hotel and a kid from Michigan was watching; so I taught him casting it and he caught a nice Cut.-you Know the look on his face;; so that rod ended up in Michigan.
