Hardy 7' 6 Palakona Bamboo Fly Rod was manufactured in May 1975 as indicated by the ML on the rod. I was working as a salesman in the fishing department and just had to have it. After I bought it, I was too nervous to take it out and fish with it.It's been stored in its original aluminum case ever since. I've taken it out of storage a few times to admire it, but not to fish with it. Now at 65 and with a bad back and arthritis in my fingers, I will never be able to fish with this rod. Therefore, I have decided to sell it to someone who can enjoy it. You can see in the photos that the plastic is still on the handle, and where customers handled it.
This would be an excellent addition to a serious collection of Hardy Bamboo Rods.
