    Bamboo rod whatsit

    Hi All,
    Thanks for taking a look, any idea what we're looking at here? Any info like make / model, age, etc. would be grateful.
    There are 3 pieces all together, the butt and mid section match but the tip piece has different colored wraps and a different guide base so I'm guessing it's not original to the rod.
    1. Butt section measures 34 3/4 inches and the only marks on it are "59 8 1/2-5 HDH the wraps are yellow or gold.
    2. Mid section measures 34 1/2 inches and is missing one guide but the wraps for that guide are still there. The wraps on this section match the butt and are yellow or gold.
    3. Tip section (last picture) measures 36 1/8 inches and the wraps are deep red with black or dark green tips.

    I think a South Bend model 59 and the hdh references the silk line to be used. Mid thirties and later?

    Think there's a chance it could be a Phillipson Paragon? I got this pic off another siteClick image for larger version.

    Future Fanatic is ALWAYS right....get used to it.

    and beware of the small type...

    I have a couple of old Bamboo rods that look similar, except the have brand names on them so it was easy, are you planning to restore that on your own, or have it sent out? I bet it would be an experience to fish with it..

    Have you seen one without the Philipson paragon written in cursive on it?
    Did they have a model 59?

    Ok Mr. model 59, no I haven't.......But I also haven't seen a Southbend model 59 with this reel seat (all aluminum) or matching wrap colors and design or the same winding check. This rods tip section would have to be 27", that's what it would need to be in order to make this an 8 1/2 foot rod. I wonder if Southbend or Phillipson are that size?

    You paid too much for it, didn't you?

    It's got a "59" written on it...

    Re: Bamboo rod whatsit

    Swamprat. My opinion leans toward a Phillipson Paragon, but I think that the tip section is from a different rod. Tbe butt and mids are wrapped in the correct colors for the Paragon, and the 59 8 1/2 - 5 HEH is consistent with the way the rod would be marked. That 59 refers to an employee number at the rod shop, and the 5 is the weight in ounces. An HEH would be equivalent to a double-taper 6-weight line. The 3 decorative wraps and the look of the winding check are consistent with the Phillipson, as are the grip style. Yes, it is odd that it doesn’t have Phillipson Paragon written in script, but it also doesn’t have a South Bend label either. The script could have wiped off if someone refinished the rod. I have a Phillipson Pacemaker where the script is very faint.

    If the ferrules fit well, then line the rod and see how it casts. You can always just tape a guide to fill in for the one missing in the mid, just to see if the rod casts well enough to be fishable. These are the fun issues when dealing with old cane that needs some work. Have fun with it.
