Japanese. It has the Japan Logo. I do not know what brand.
Combination Rod.. Has the reversible grip to be used as a Fly Rod or a Casting Rod.
From what I've learned and have been told Japanese Boo is not of the best quality. They were made around the time of WW2 and sold in the Military PX's and usually came in a wooden presentation box.
But they do clean up and restore very well! I recently restored one this past Summer and donated it to "Project Healing Waters"....

Answers will sometimes come slow on this board, but they will come.
The answer above is correct. Not much real value to this rod in a monetary sense, but it could be a lot of fun to rework and fish.

One more thing, At the tip section (about 4-5 inches from the tip) there is a break in the bamboo. Could you give the best way to repair that?
Thanks again guys!!!!

Marriage is like a deck of cards- in the beginning, all you need is two hearts and a diamond. In the end, you wish you had a club and a spade.

Here's a picture of one I re-did as an image project for our How to Cane-Wap Rod Handles instructions (another thing a lot of our guys like to play with).
If you'd like me to send you our bamboo rod fix-up instructions and "How to Cane-wrap Rod Handles" (both are PDF files I can email you) - drop me an email.
