If you still have two Sila-flex PT 60s, I might be interested in them if they are the original fiberglass (as opposed to "high density" glass.

I'll give you $100 for two pre '63 Silaflex PT60s (NOT Browning Silaflex.  Maybe that will give you a better idea of their value than somebody giving you vague recollections.  Email me @

I can answer questions on custom rod building and rod restoration and rod repair for bamboo, graphite and fiberglass fishing rods. I also have experience in estimating the value of vintage rods and determining the original manufacturer.


I operate a custom rod building business providing fly rods, spey rods, casting and spinning rods in bamboo graphite and fiberglass. I also operate a custom rod building school where myself and other professional rod builders teach individuals to build custom rods. I have a personal interest in vintage rods and have a small collection of reference books and articles which often help shed light on the origins of the older rods.

I have a large number of individual clients for whom I have designed and built custom fishing rods of all types. I also have two commercial clients for whom I build private label rods, one in the USA and one in Europe.
