Sabina

Post by Trilob » Mon Feb 01, 2016 4:04 pm

This summer I bought a Sabina and finally had some time to rewhip some loose eyes. Last Saturday I took it outside and give it some action. To keep it short: I love how the dark cane looks and how it feels!
And I caught a personal best roach on it! With its 0.7 lbs a modest fish but I'm happy with it!

I noticed the rod has two different reel rings so I wonder how much of the rod is 'original'. I see most Sabinas on this forum have an agate but ring. Mine hasn't so I wonder if it already had a refurb in the past. Also, if I don't use a rubber band the reel rings will fall off. Is that the same with other Sabinas?

Also I have a problem with tight ferrules. It is hard to take the pieces apart after fishing. Any ideas what is the best way to clean the ferrules?

The fish looks more like a Rudd than a Roach, a nice fish whatever the species!

Is it possible there are rods with original red whippings?

I also have the clear lined tip ring so that might be an original.

And I like the solution with the green whippings around the cork. I might give that a try...

You could try lighter fluid and cotton bud or brasso.
Old fishermen never die they only smell that way.

These are original colours as far as I know...which isn't very much I appreciate- I just love the rods!
My call is it's a roach as the Anal fin is short and the mouth looks as if its front facing...lovely fishy
