    I can't seem to find much information on this rod. Any one know anything about them? This one I'm looking at has a down locking reel seat with slide ring. It's a beautiful rod that I would appreciate knowing more about.

    Approximate year of manufacturer?
    Original retail price?
    Estimate of value?
    Anyone interested in buying it?
    Etc etc.

    Thanks ImageUploadedByTapatalk1405975584.247861.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1405975599.846380.jpg

    I've owned a couple of these old T&T rods what number is it. Does it have the gold raps. I made the mistake fishing my #369 it fished fine till I tried to untangle the tip and snap. Very cool rods.

    I actually don't own this rod but know where one is available for purchase. I got some good info on this rod from another forum I posted the same question on today. Seriously, if anyone is interested in buying it I will point you in their direction.

    Thanks for the responses.

    I've seen this rod go for around $300. They are very nice early graphite. Pretty cool.
