    I have one of the 8' Rockfish Combos made by Silstar that has to be over 20 years old and it's still going strong. Bought it brand new for $39.99 in the 1980's. You have a good pole, I'm sure

    Years ago I was on a pretty tight budget (poor) I had a silstar rod and reel. It served me well, and gave me years of service, when I did my upgrades I passed it on to someone else.
