Default Identification help...

Hey guys... I'm getting my grandpa's old ultralight rod on the water this week, and as I started getting it ready, I realized that it has no identifying marks on it... I don't know what it is. Perhaps an old Wright and McGill?

Anyway, here are a few pics. I know swimbait and a few others are versed in this kind of thing, so perhaps someone has seen this rod before and can help me out.


Pic #1: This is the rod just above the grip. There was once a brand name or something on this gold sticker, but now there is nothing.




Pic #2: This is the first guide... I really like the wrapping and style of the guide!




Pic #3: This is the grip and reel seat.




Pic #4: Nice spongy fiberglass action!




Thanks in advance, guys.

South Bend is looking the most promising so far... Haven't found the exact rod yet.

It doesn't say anything, kraz... Here's what it looks like. (pic 1 from earlier)



Looks like at one point there was probably printing on this gold sticker/label... but now, there is no print, or even impressions of imprintation.
