I re-aquired a Fenwick FF755. I don't know why I sold the last one, but one arrived in the mail today and it's as good as I remember.

There are rods I would like, but none left that I am really searching for (and if I was, I wouldn't post it here).

For me the unicorn for which I search is a FF83...

I keep them in the same rod tube, but no luck so far.

A Fisher blank- built rod, they all sell over my budget. I will find one at some point.

Scott early 1973 7 1/2’, 5 weight, Pow-R-Ply Rod, with Harry Wilson’s Flex Sleeves inserted in the blank’s cavity. Had one while a student in Bozeman, where I sold the Rod, I imagine to cover living expenses.

McFarland GTX or Epic would be where I looked first in glass.


If by some magic someone wants to part with their Steffen 7/8 you should jump on it. Otherwise I bet that 7wt parabolic McFarland would be pretty sweet for this.

McFarland semi-para 725-3. Found 3 (well maybe only 2?) one sold years ago and the other two Gents are not selling.
Still holding out hope.

For the "strong 7wt" category I have found my unicorn, a Fenwick FF80 H serial number. Maybe I'm in a different universe but all of the past comments on this site refer to how slow the action is and can't throw a line very far have not matched my experience at all...far from it in fact. I've like several lines on it from a DT7 up to an SA Steelhead taper 8wt. With the 8wt Steelhead taper 70' casts are not a big deal and the tip tracks better than any glass rod I've ever tried. And spey casting? Best spey casting glass rod that I've tried by a long shot. The tip is significantly stronger than an FF807 causing it to flex deeper into the rod but with the steep taper the butt of the rod never gets "soggy". In my hand the casting load is perfectly blended through the full rod, no part overpowering the other. Great feel when casting long or short. Strong enough for big steelhead yet still bends pretty nicely with 14" trout, cheap and easy to find...what's not to like. Now, my unicorn rod is essentially a 5wt FF80! I recently purchased an FF80-3 that will get an thorough interview this summer. The quest never ends

My FF80 is like that Tom, it seems to cast itself most days, my favorite Fenwick, makes me think they used the same model number on more than one taper design.

I'm looking for any JC Higgins brown rods, smaller sizes, any condition. Have one I'm refinishing and redone with new guides, guide placement, and finish. They work really well for me. Plus they look great redone.
