I know that one is a Wright McGill Granger Victory and another is a Heddon #125, both made of split tonkin bamboo probably in the 50s. I have used them in the past but decades ago for bluegill/bass and they seemed to work just fine. I wonder how well they would hold up if used today? pB, would there be any @@VintageFlyRodExperts in your circle of fly fishing friends that might know anything of attempting to use vintage rods such as these?
I'm no expert, but I know enough to say that both rods mentioned here are very collectible. I would not use them without being fully inspected for de-lamination, loose ferrules, and the such.
The glue they used in 'those days' has a tendency to weaken after a day's fishing. That's why they came with two tips. Use one for a day, and swap it out tomorrow.
You can PM me for my recommendation on what to do to display these fine rods.
