It was a FF765 that looked brand new, it still had the plastic wrap on the cork. Tube also looked new. The bidding was stuck on $63.00 for days and I was determinded to swoop in and scoop it up in the last minute for any price. Wouldn't you know it, my computer froze up and I could not bid and time expired. It sold for $65.00.

Wow, a 7 1/2' 5wt vintage Fenwick - like new - even with the original tube for $65 - that's a steal !!

Wasn't me, but I do have a nice collection of shorter Wonderods.

I didn't realize Fenwick makes new fiberglass rods (s2 glass) go for about $200.00

Yeah I've thought about getting one of those new fenglass Fenwicks. I think I read they are a tad faster and lighter than the older glass. Had my eye on the Redington Buttersticks too.

Echo, Hardy, TfO, and a few other companies have been making glass in the past few years too, but if I can buy vintage for less then half that, and in good condition, then why not, if it performs well.

I broke a 5 weight last year so I'm in the market this year for another 5 or 6 weight between 7' - 8'.in length.

I own one Fenwick. It is a vintage late 1960's 7' FF70. Great dry fly rod. I have never cast one of the heavier weights but would sure like to try one some time. I own an old Heddon Pal 8 1/2' 8 weight and it's really heavy.
