Question
10 ft telescoping rod with small reel on bottom end of rod, line runs through rod, stamped sears and roebuck, very old but in good shape. approximent value is????

Answer
Hi Rick,

The Sears rods never have a lot of collector value.  Too many of them made I guess.  I'd guess $15-$30.  That said, I am not the expert on old tackle.  Please run this past Joe Douglas on this site and he will have a better idea.

Thanks,

Marc
