Split cane 3

Post by aussbasstony » Wed Jul 14, 2010 6:38 pm

This one is a 4 piece rod and to me it looks like it is a dual action, as in swap the tips for a lighter rod and change to a heavier tip piece.

Anyway Same as above any help would be great !

This one says Jarvis Walker on the Butt !

Agree with both Mully and OCD . . .

Early Jarvis Walker split canes are hitting good dollars . . . one of those rods (looked the same as yours) went for about $170 a couple of months back.

Maybe worth holding onto Tony thumbsupsmilie

Hi Tony
fish with it mate.
get an old Alvey and you are set. clapclap clapclap clapclap

seriously the JW canes are collectible.
they all have names eg Portsea Stanley Mudgee Sealake etc.
haven't come across a cane Black Queen before--I think this come in the glass range.

prices depends on condition, and the decals are pretty important factor. the ones with mint decals and original bindings/guides are more desirable.
the Lawrence you got is pretty good and it is worth around what MXB said. may be more if somebody hasn't got it in their collection.
the older JW has the names engraved into the cane.
the other cane you got could be a Butterworth from Q'sland.

you can start a JW collection mate.

no !!! don't do it crazysmilie crazysmilie crazysmilie

Albert . . . you are right and the 'Black Queen' came in solid fibreglass and there was also the 'Black Queen Delux' which I was using as a kid. Had agate guides and was about 9ft in length.

Hi Roger
the BQ cost an arm and four legs when it came out. it was in pounds and shillings and it was about 1/4 to 1/3 of the average weekly wage in the early 60's.
that and the Erskine/Erkskine delux were the rods most kids coveted. top of the range stuff.
you were a lucky boy to have a BQ delux.
still use mine for trout--mudeye under a bubble-- watching for the rooster tail when the fish hit---what excitement!!!!

Albert . . . I was still using it for bubble floating in Eucumbene up until 10 years ago when my father decided to ruin it by painting it and changing guides and covering it with araldite when I was overseas for a few years etc etc (I had spare agate guides and tips for it) zippedsmilie crazysmilie zippedsmilie

I threw it at him and told him to never touch my fishing gear again. I also had another JW that was really expensive that was built on a hollow fibreglass blank with light weight alloy reel seat, cork grips . . . can't remember the name but it was better than the BQ (super light) in my opinion but again the old fool managed to snap that one and changed runners and butchered it too. Threw that one at him as well. I call him the 'Wrecker' and won't let him touch anything because anything he touches comes back smashed or broken!!

Great rods as you say . . . for me now just memories catching big trout, a monster carp that went approx 8kg on 6lb line and so many other fish. Wonderful rods

he was just trying to help you younguns!!!

I bet your heart did a bit of racing and thumping when the carp hit!!
and then when it came to the top and was thrashing left and right, bending the tip to an impossible curve all you were thinking was "don't you dare break my rod or you died a horrible death, you bbb". which it did anyway when you got the hook out. crazysmilie crazysmilie crazysmilie
