    Default old rods to good home

    I have a couple of rods to give away, they are both fishable rods but are over 20 years old and haven't been cast in at least 15 years. both are graphite or graphite composite.
    1) Kunnan 7'-6"- 6 wt. 96% graphite
    2) Berkley Spirit 9'- 5 wt. high modulous graphite( whatever that means)

    If no one has stepped up, I'd be happy to give them both a new home. I know a 6 year-old who would benefit from a 7' 6" rod.

    Just a follow up. I got the rods, washed up the cork handles and polished up the blanks and hardware. The rods actually look almost new. My buddy has 2 kids, a boy 6 and a girl 10, who both enjoy fishing with their dad. For Christmas this year, the fat man (me) threw the rods into a couple of rod socks and rod tubes, that were not doing anything anymore, and gave a present to each of the kids. Dad will have to provide a reel and line for each (my motto: Never give a kid a present that doesn't cost the parents in some fashion. Click here to enlarge) and the kids are good to go. Thanks Brian for helping make this happen!
