I need to find a source for a hollow fiberglass sphere / globe, opaque white, approximately 1/4" inch thick, 15 - 16" diameter, with a circular opening of about 6-8". I just want one or two for starters. I'm making a retro hippie lamp with twinkle Christmas lights. The globe will sit over an array of twinkle lights that has a cylinder of clear plastic surrounding the array. The plastic will be decorated with interesting shapes that will cast multicolored light on the inside of the globe.
Assuming I can find a source for the globe, that is.

I stumbled across an old fiberglass fishing rod in a cardboard mailing tube.
It still appeared to be in excellent shape, yet I know the rod must be at least 25 years old, as it was a parting gift from the previous owner, circa 1979.
Should I risk taking it out on the water, for old time's sake, or would the rod end up snappimg from fatigue? What sort of reel considerations could I make, given it's age?
