I recently bought a 12 foot zipplex rod, the owners dad had built buying the blanks in the 1980's,1005 written on one of the blanks but they are a 50/50 butt tip the butt feels heavy aluminium? Is this likely to be a 1005 as all the ones mentioned are small butt long tip.

In a very early Sea Angler article by John Darling in the early 1980,s it stated any rod could have a spigot fitted for a small fee so there is every chance that the 1005 was an original factory 50/50 blank
