Gaddis,

I have a Shakepeare Wonderod 7'9", marked NO. 1250 model FHJ. Green reel seat, had black wraps. This was my Grandfather favorite rod. Can you tell me the years this model was offered and line weight, etc?

Thanks,

Robert

1953 to 1956, possibly 1957. Line weights are HDH and 4M = DT6F and WF8F. The FHJ date code puts it at 1953.

Gaddis,

Thanks for your help. After repairing and rebuilding the rod, I plan on having fun fishing it again. I don't think the rod has been fished in 30 years.
