    Butterworth Surf Rod

    Hi peoples,
    I'm refurbishing 2 Butterworth surf rods for a mate, and I'm trying to restore them to original condition. I have one that is a Fingal S.U but cant work out the numbers, some info would be appreciated and I'm also after a sticker for the rod indicating the past time power rods label.
    your help would be much appreciated.

    Cheers
    Russ

    Thats the problem, I cant see the numbers, they are far too faded.

    It has a part number MT 8144H

    MT = medium taper
    8 = 8 wrap
    144 = 144 inches long
    H = ?

    Fingal S.U, that's the only writing I can figure out, the other numbers after that are too faded.

    Yep that sounds about right, H could be something to do with the wooden butt ? Hardwood ?
    Sorry I know this doesn't help the OP.

    Fingal was the rod for overhead or threadline reels ie long butt.
    The Fingal you have should be SU7153 ie surf, 7 wrap and 153 inches.
    They did have a SU6156 also.
    H stands for heavy ie heavier wall of rod for throwing larger weights.

    You won't be able to buy decals . I have never heard of them for sale.
    The only possibility is to find an old rod with the decal intact and then remove, or somehow try and copy.
