Thread: ID of old Southam blank

    ID of old Southam blank

    Hi all,
    Iím gradually working through the arsenal and completely rebuilding all my old rods. Almost finished a Super Barra rebuild which is looking good but yesterday I stripped down my oldest rod which my grandfather gave me in the early 70s.

    It was a Southam spinning rod, brown in colour about 5í6Ē with cork grips and a chrome brass reel seat with twin nuts. It was quite used when I got it so replaced the guides early on and used it for quite a few years. After going back to bare blank yesterday I see the model? number IC308 on the bottom of the blank. Blank is sanded and you can see internal spiral of the fibreglass. Any clues? Itís no dealbreaker just personal interest.
    Many thanks rodbuilders for your time
    Mike
