Question
I have an Eagle Claw Sweetheart fly rod in original metal tube with the sticker in tact on the end of the tube. On the sticker it has Eagle Claw "Sweetheart" M2AB 1/2.  I received it as a birthday gift in 1972. It has been used 3 times. I was just wondering what I have, I know it may not be anything.
Thanks,
Mark

I see them sell in the $50 to $75 range - closer to $75 in the condition you noted. They are great rods with history that goes back to the Goodwin Granger Rod company out of Colorado, which was bought by Wright & McGill in the late 40s.

I would get a 2nd opinion here

you will need to register before posting a photo, also the rod length is important.
