Here is a 2-piece 11wt made by Scott in the mid 1970s. The translucent glass was a test color and shows the internal sleeves used to modify action. This is the only one I've seen like this, Enjoy!

I recall that we built two of those translucent rods with sleeves that weren't glued in place. That allowed us not only to show sleeve placement but to let folks cast the rods with and without sleeves to show the effect they had on performance. I believe the other rod was an F86, 8'6" 7 wgt.
