I'm looking for help identifying a fly rod blank. What I know is it's a 8.5 ft 6wt rod with spigot ferrules the blank colour is a dark charcoal. On the bag that it's in it has the price of 140.00 on it. It says Boron and 8 1/2 on it. On the tip section of the rod it has a 2.5 inch ferrule reinforcement layer. It says the #6 On the butt end of the tip section. The butt section has 42180-6, 8 1/2, BGDF or B6DF, 2102, BE23, BE4. Any information on this would be great

A picture of the ferrule and label might help.  Strange as it may seem, the handwriting on a label can be a big help.

 

Fisher, Orvis or Fenwick are my thoughts. 

 

Sanded or unsanded blank?

It is unsanded. So gloss finish. I'm not sure how to post photo's is there a minimum post restriction on photo's

Sounds like a Rodon B-G trout rod by Ted Simroe

Neat looking blank, but I can't place it.  It doesn't look like Orvis or Fisher, which were what I was thinking of.

I'm fairly certain that it is a Ted Simroe blank based on what is said above.
