Managed a package deal from a nice seller !
First up , an 8 foot , 3 inch St Croix 7 wt. . 7 guides , and overall light wear . A Lovely feel during the wiggle test , just on the quick side of medium . Color is a bizarre shade of Pinkish-Purple-Mauve ?
Second is an 8 foot Whittemore Raven model , still has the original plastic sleeve on the handle . Seems unfished , but poorly stored , judging by a few scratches on the blank . 8 guides , stout blank - very fast action , with most of the flex being in the top half of the tip . I'll start w/ an 8 wt. on this and see what it says . From Braintree , Mass. , wondering if it is the same company that the Bamboo builder H.A. Whittemore started ?
Wanted to share a few photos , as I haven't seen either of these specific rods on here before .
