Fishing/heddon pal


hi,I have a heddon pal #7555 mark IV 7' and I was wondering what its worth.I am not wanting to sell it but was wondering its value. thanks  Kerry

Hi Kerry,

Heddon made a lot of "Pal" rods.  Typically, value is going to be in the $15-$90 range depending on actual condition of the rod and type of rod.  Assuming the rod is in the Good to Very Good range as to condition, value would be in the $30-$65 range.

Thanks,  Joe

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.
