My husband, Joe Graves, and created and made the Texas Sidewinder Rod until we sold the company in 2002, just after his first brain surgery. I am sad to say Joe died with cancer last July and I have had numerous friends ask if I had any of his original rods for sale. Unfortunately, we did not have enough for us to even give all our grandchildren. If any of you have one of the original sidewinders, you will recognize it because it will have his name near the grip, and if you are interested in selling it, please contact me at 254-316-1146 or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Bless you.
