    Does anyone know anything about these rods? I found one in great shape but not quite ready to pull the trigger. Anything helps! Thanks.

    They are a fine 5wt.
    Value can be +/- $120 in perfect condition with correct factory tube/sock.
    If you are not paying too much, you'll be pleased with it.

    Mighty fine fly rod you are contemplating. Fenwick made some fine rods in those days. I have several including the FF805. It is so easy to cast and fun with a fish on.

    Thank guys. I'm now leaning toward a 705, 755, or older 75. If you have any experience with these, I'd love to hear about it.
