9’6” CONOLON No. 2196 Custom Glass 2/1. 6 3/8 oz. #10/11 line. 1 in. Extension Butt; U/L screw lock alum. Reel seat; Full Wells grip; Wraps tan nylon tipped black on chrome guides & strippers over brown glass; N/S Ferrules. Long tip 5.5 ft.; Short butt 4.2 ft. In cloth bag, no tube. [Cat.71.] 57-0849 rx. - Designed by Johnny Dieckman, the famous tournament caster, in 1951. He took a bait casting rod for the tip, & a section from a salt water boat rod for the butt. I used this rod to take salmon, steelhead, & striped bass in California in 1958, tarpon, bonefish, & permit in Florida in 1960, Atlantic salmon & sea trout in Norway & Sweden in 1961. It is a fine fishing machine. This rod used the earlier woven fiberglass fabric with a phenoloformaldehyde resin with a high-melting elastomer. The finish on these early rods often become unsightly with heavy use. This rod shows that heavy use. Unsightly but very fishable. Good. $75
