    Default Abercrombie & Fitch Rod

    Hi Guys
    A guy I know phoned me yesterday and said he inherited a rod and it seems to be quite a rare rod. It's an Abercrombie & Fitch Passport Rod. He says it's a 9 piece rod about 4,5 foot long. I did look on the net and someone mentions it being 10 piece, I think he never included the grip. I'm only mentioning it if anyone is a collector and this is something you would like to have. I got the impression that he was willing to part with it. He sent some pics but they came out a bit grainy. If you want you can pm me your number and give it to him.

    I have left him a message. I also googled it and it looks like there were about 100 made. Seems to get good write ups from the few pages I read.

    Not sure about condition, that could be a factor. Any offer of up to 4K should be considered by the seller I reckon. Anything more is a bit much, and anything less than 2.5K will be a bargain for the buyer (again, condition dependant).

    Here are some more pics. I know the guy from my wifes carp fishing club only and he is a bit of a chop, (don't tell him I said that) ;-) so here's his number if anyone wants to phone for details. Like I said I thought it would be nice for the collectors to know about this but I think this guy got the inheritance and sees dollar signs. Worth a haggle though. His name is Jaco and number 076 752 1023
    Cheers

    PS, the pics are as he sent to me. Again, not too clear
