Harrington/Harnell 555 Virgin build and 553 Rebuild.

Steve has really out done himself again.  In usual fashion, he was able to expertly  reproduce two of the most sought after and desired beach shark fishing rods from Florida to Texas.  Not only are these original Harrington rods vintage and no longer available anywhere, but the guides and reel seats he used are also vintage.  There's something to be said for those generations who fished and came before us.  And these rods pay homage to that.  As usual, he wrapped them in original wraps with original almost nonexistent Gudebrod thread.   I wouldn't have it any other way out of respect for the original look.  Awesome job Steve and thankyou.
