Up for bid is a Vintage Heddon Deluxe "Pal" #3151 ~M Medium Action 5' Casting Rod. This rod is in pretty good shape for its age. There are a few chips in the paint as is usual for these painted rods that got used. The guides are all still intact, the wraps look great and the tip top guide is in very good condition. The cork handle is clean and smooth with light wear on the painted metal part of the handle. The seam on the case has worn out and split at the spot where the handle pocket meets the tube; it could easily be repaired as the vinyl is still intact, but it still holds the handle as is. A Real American Classic!
