Hi Raiders,

Here is a vintage Butterworth blackfish rod custom built in Narrabeen by Grahams.IMG_2697.thumb.JPG.df819d00f3cbbcc78d69afc64c7b4940.JPG

The colour of the blank made me think it was Snyderglas, but when I showed Royce he confirmed it's Butterworth and predates Snyder by more than a decade, early 70's.

Its the classic see thru red, with underbound black Fuji guides.  It's Butterworths version of a Sportex 662, and when placed side by side the length and taper are identical.

It's in great usable condition, binding show a bit of age but still OK. I've matched it up with an Avon Royal making it a classic combo. I can't wait to get out and use it.

Great looking parabolic action with good bottom end power, like the red see through blank
