Those are cool I have one Bamboo fly rod and reel, and 2 1940's steel fly rods. I did have the Bamboo rod appraised and to my surprise the reel was worth way more then the rod.

I was told this is a great bass rod, 7 weight line is what he used last.
I don't know where to go get it appraised but Ebay has them for $150 bucks.
I'd rather take it fishing sometime.

Bamboo rods r really pricey today.....Is it straight? Some tend to warp after years of fishing if not taken care off. Refinish the brute and get some more years out of it my friend.........GT

It is straight and I did some casts out in the yard. I think I will use when things warm up at Perris. I don't really want to refinish or work on it tho; I'll just make it a wall hanger if it starts coming unraveled.

There are bamboo purists out there still - I'm not one of them. I had several that I've now sold.
As wall hangers they are nice, though. They are just too tender to suit me.

The Medalist is a nice SA reel; a standard in its day, really. Pristine ones go for good money.
The whole kit looks like 1940s-1960s vintage, but I don't really know details.
South Bend was a main name in the day, but it wasn't fancy - more "Average Joe," bread and butter. I'd guess the whole package, as is, would fetch 100-200 bucks.
Maybe.
None of it is really rare, and it's seen plenty of use. But a lot of people still want that stuff.

If it were me, and I couldn't bear to part with it for sentimental or nostalgic reasons, I'd hang it in the man cave and play with it now and then.

South Bend, and a few other were plentiful and inexpensive. Bamboo was the norm in the days past. These were the low budget like Sears and Roebucks. They are clubby and a dime a dozen.
There are older bamboos to look out for like Granger or Phillipson, Winston, Orvis.
I am not an authority, but I do love boo. They are fun. But the older cheaper rods are not representative of the newer or the good bamboos.
But heck fish it! Use a heavier reel to help balance it out.
WHEN connecting the two pieces, NEVER twist. Line the up then squeeze together. There will be a pop when you separate.
I bought a Quad Bamboo rod from Sweetwater 2 years ago in a 6 wt. Quads are a little quicker and stronger. I use it with an old South Bend reel. I use it for Carp.

Always a great find because of the history and you got the whole kit there. I personally would display it.
