    Does anyone have an old Harnell or Harrington catalog? Looking for info on a 773 and a 756. Butt size, tip size, action, and line weight? Any info would help. Thanks

    Bob,
    Here's the spec on the 756. The 773 wasn't in there. Could it possibly be 173?

    butt: .980
    tip: 7 -7.5
    action: moderate (not in the catalog but I've built on before)
    line: 15-30 lb.

    I found some info on another forum regarding the 773. 10 feet, heavy action,
    20 to 40lb. I'm not familiar with that particular blank.


    If your certain that it's a 773 contact Erik (EJ Har on here), I'm sure he can help you out since he's planning on building new Harnells in the future. Randy.

    How would they compare to a 542 or 552? Thanks for the help.
