I'm trying to identify the honey rod in these pics. Its a 10' 1 piece custom, looks to be older. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

Almost impossible to identify rods by their color. Many companies built honey yellow rod blanks - Lamiglas, Fenwick, etc.

Thats what i kind of figured, i thought maybe the length and it being a 1 piece could narrow it down. Seems to be a 2-5oz rod

Lamiglas or Fenwick remain my best guesses.

The black one in the pic is also a 10’ 1 piece and is a lami, maybe they were made as a pair

Very possible. Lamiglas was well known for their long, 1-piece surf blanks.
