    Saw a couple FF 535s as well. One at maybe a reasonable price.

    Hey Mark,
    This one should be a graphite rod...

    HMG stand for High modulus graphite...

    in 1973, Fenwick was the first company to introduce an all-graphite rod. This was known as the "High Modulus Graphite" rod, or "HMG." Graphite would go on to revolutionize the way that most rods would be made...

    If you are interested in Fenwick fiberglass rods (I am a fan too :) ), not sure if you are aware of this wiki page...several members over fiberglassflyrodders has made a nice wiki pages see link below... Mark

    Thanks for the info Mark, I'm not interested in this rod, and don't know a lot about old Fenwicks, even tho I probably should, it just looked like glass and had a cool handle and reel seat so I thought it might be of interest to someone.
    I think I'll check out the link you mentioned.

    I accually had a old Fenwick many years ago, I don't even remember what model it was. I think it was either a 7wt
    or 8wt, I think one of my kids broke it. I've also cast a couple and thought they were pretty sweet casting rods, I just didn't fish enough small water were I thought glass would be the way to go. I now think differently.

    I'm looking at a old darkish brown blank made by Fenwick Woodstream FL96-6 The blank is new still in the plastic sleeve. Just curious as to what this blank might be worth.

    Yeah, I don't ever recall Fenwick making a glass flyrod under a 6wt.
