    Trying to find some info on a old rod I picked at an auction a few years ago. Don't know if it's called a tuna stick,,and,, Don't know what IGFA stands for ,but it's marked IGFA ,,CLASS 50 3263 , 6 3/4. There is no name brand on the rod ,,but ,,the rollers are marked,,,AFTCO.. Been offerd $ 120.00 for it ,but don't want to sell it cause it's cool looking . Never plan on useing it. Anbody's insight is appreciateted,,,

    It would be tough identify. Could be custom or could be from a small regional shop. The blank reminds me of some of the very old Garcia type stuff, but there's no guarantee.


    This reply above come from Tom Kirkman of Rod Builders/ Rod Makers Magazine. If any more suggestions/remarks or the ID comes in on the rod, I'll post as I receive them Bro. :wink:

    Looks like an OLD Silaflex. I can't be sure though.
