Powell and Fisher rods

I was given two rods and was trying to find information such as quality and value of the rods. If you have time to help, thank you.

Fisher Presidential III 2pc 8wt 9'0"

Powell "Legacy Light" 8'6" 5-6wt ( hand written at base of blank "24xx-92" ) maybe rod # and date 1992?

The Powell is most likely a 92. I presume its a Brown Blank or Green Blank?

I suspect that the monetary value of the two rods is not anything to get excited about. Maybe a little more than a hundred bucks apiece?
One cast can change your day...maybe your life.

Fisher rod

The President was Fisher's top of the line. However the company has been out of business for at least 5 years, and so no repairs/replacements are possible. The President may not have been made since J. Fisher sold the company (in bankruptcy) over 10 years ago.
All of the Fisher rods were soft or limber by today's standards. Getting anything for it would require finding someone who knew the rods and liked soft rods. Unfortunately they are not old enough to be collector's pieces. Without a warranty or chance of repairs, you would probably be lucky to get $100 for it.

I would fish with it until it broke, then throw it away.
