Hi,

I was hoping someone here could tell me what year these rods are from? Found them all dusty in a shed and can’t seem to find any info online.

Wilson sea coaster 13’6 one piece surf rods.

Don’t think these ones were ever even used... was at a company warehouse selling off excess new furniture... seen em sitting in dark corner of warehouse full of new office supplies... gave them $15

Cleaned up nice once I wiped off the mouldy crap.....

It’s the same “Wilson” company that is still trading in fishing tackle now. They used to make their rods in Brisbane. But there are more people on site with better knowledge on them then me

Kieran, they look like the low winch mount models. Team them up with a couple of 5" Alveys and you'll have surf outfits that will last you a lifetime!!
