Rod 2  
Mr Vermillion - I bought a 2 piece fiberglass rod in very good condition at a local estate sale. The sale contained many post WWII items. The rod has a mark that is very faded that only the outline of it is barely visible. It does have a stamped mark that reads:  
2030  7- 1/2  SURESTRIKE
The ferrules are very heavy duty and it has a rubber button at the very base.
I am interested in age and manufacturer and value if possible.
More images are available as this site only has spot for 2 photos.
Thank you for your assistance.

Answer
Hi

I just got back from vacation, sorry for the delay.

I am not familiar with this rod, the rubber but indicates its a trolling rod....probably for ocean fishing. I would estimate from the photos its a 1960/70s rod. I recommend posting a question on this site...since the mfg label is gone:
