Thank you Grizzly Wulff!! That is exactly what I was hopeful of hearing.
I bought a rod that was built on a Winston blank they were using 20 to 25 years ago.
Haven't received it yet. I'll try and post a couple of pictures. The rod was recently rebuilt with a new Lemke reel seat, excellent cork, new old stock Perfection
line guides and tiptop and a new titanium with SiC ring stripping guide.
