Ya, these are some really old glass ones, I think I bought them in the early 90's, (basspro telescoping rods) the reason I thought of them is they are long and fairly limber. They've been sitting in the corner of the garage, and moved hither and yon for a really long time now. I was using one of them for a dead stick rod for awhile there.
