Suggestion for finding "Older School' Gear

Fisherman since childhood (fly, spin, casting), but have been out of the loop since around 2012. Gear was stolen during relocation and I've recently caught the bug again, no pun intended. I've examined many shop catalogs but can not find what I seek:
 
1) Ultralight spinning rod, 5'-6,' 2-6lb test, 1/32-1/4 oz lures, cork handle with rings.
2) MICRO spinning 3'-4'6," 1-4lb test, 1/64 - 3/8 oz lures, cork handle with rings.
3) Ultralight casting, pistol grip, 6-12lb test, 3/8-1 oz lures, pistol grip...
 
Your replies are very much appreciated!

    I’m sure you can find them look online. Might want to go to the stores around opening they might have good sales. Or you can build your own it’s not hard buy a kit.

    While not exactly the season for it now, many garage sales; yard sales; and flea markets will have what you are looking for — sometimes unused -/ at well below market prices.

    Everything I say can be fully substantiated by my own opinion.

    What do you mean by "older school" with those specs might as well get customs built

    Agreed. Custom, garage sales, or compromise. Cork handles with rings are mostly on ice and fly rods from what I've seen in recent years. And an ultra light casting rod that handles 1oz of weight? Not sure if that's gonna be a thing. Bass pro micro light rods have a few options with the sliding ring reel seats. That's as close as I can get ya. I have a couple of them and love them, but I don't have the models with the rings. I don't see a significant advantage to the rings.
