Guys, I just bought this outfit in a group of rods and reels from a guy. I can not begin to tell you how hard it was to control my excitement! The guy called and wanted to sell me some Penn reels and other “stuff” for fishing. Would I be interested? I informed him it depended on what models the reels were and the condition. He threw out a price and I said I would take a look. This was part of “ the stuff”! I paid the man his asking price! Now, to my problem, no name on the rod. I am curious if anyone recognizes the way it’s made and can identify the maker. The rod is sort of a triangle or pyramid shape. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance,
Randy McConnell

Randy looks like you got a very nice Ocean City #814 Cradle with an early, but re-tied Tycoon Bimini King tip. I say early as the roller guides are an early version with the two nuts under the foot of each one holding the guide together. These cradles were made between 1942 and 1956. Nice Find for sure!
