    Question Conoflex ? Any idea which 1 ?

    To remove this advert please register for a free account

    Hi all,
    I have today taken delivery of an old Conoflex
    The butt section is just a bit over 4ft in length (52inches)
    The tip section is well over 7ft (92 inches)

    The real seat is a fixed fuji fps 26 also eva foam grips
    The guides have red inserts and the main wrap is also red with a yellow trim
    It stands at 12ft high with the foam grips and length I'd guess it was a bass rod but not 100%



    Anyone have better info please fell free to let me know

    Cheers

    Early Flick Tip ?

    Sounds a bit like my first one, at least the blank does, although I dont know about the fittings as I bought mine as a blank and built it myself, a very slim rod for its time, Easily mistaken for a Bass Rod.

    Just to add , as Concrete says below, the Flick tip was a Carbon gray, no visible crossweaves.

    No green in it mate, just had a look
    just carbon (grey) which has been varnished over

    1 of my club guys mentioned a Cod 6 but I have rebuilt 1 before and it doesn't seem to be the same but I have never held a Cod 5
