Answer
Hi,

The Heddon Black Beauty is a well made custom built rod. Yours is a fairly common length of 8 1/2 feet. They sell in the $250 range in complete, excellent condition. If your missing the spare tip or a tip is broken, dont have the original bag, finish is breaking down, etc...value drops off quickly.

The Union Mfg Co flyrod $10-20 range.

Martin fly reel - $5 range.

Heddon fly reel - $5 range.
