My question is, does the 7'6'' old fenwick telescoping fiberglass flipping stick take a baitcasting reel or a spinning reel? Here is the background info: The rod has no trigger. All the old markigs are rubbed off. The only info I have found is that I read somewhere that it had no trigger and someone used a round reel (has to be a baitcast reel?) . I bought this rod at the end of a show while the vendor was packing to go. I believe from what I read in Johnson's Fenwick book it was introduced in 1978 to bolster sales for the flipping stick that was not telescoping because the rod was too long in most boats. I have seen no pictures of anyone fishing either rod. Of course, I have the telescoping model. This is kind of a neat old fishing rod that I would like to fish. I would think a flipping rod has to be for a baitcaster but with no trigger?I hope someone has the answer. Thanks.
