New member from the PNW. I found this site while looking for information on a vintage reel. I have been lurking for awhile and finally decided to take the plunge. I currently have rods Trailmaster spin/fly 4TMU 7 ½ ft and a Trailmaster fly 4 TMF 7 ½ ft and a Blue Diamond 2 pc. Graphite 8 ½ fly BDF7624 8 ½ ft. I am also in the hunt for a Green Hornet. Not a major collector, just enjoy having and using vintage rods and reels. Looking to increase my knowledge. More of a reader than a poster. Not a big internet user so I hope I am doing this correctly. Thank you.

Welcome Sam. This is THE PLACE for all things fiberglass. Lots of info and folks who are willing to share.

What kind of fishing do you do?

You will see that there are many options in fiberglass rods. And vintage and modern glass rod have their merits. Try as many rods as you can.

Enjoy the ride.
