I recently found my grandfathers old baitcasting outfit. I would guess it is a 1930-1940 vintage. The reel is a Pflueger Akron no. 1893 and the rod is a True Temper Raider 5' square steel model with speedlock reel seat. It has three different patent #'s on it. I used to make fun of it when I was a kid because the rod was square steel instead of a round tubular shape. Does anybody know how I can find out when these were made?
