Comments 5 3/8 11 18 25 1/4 32 1/2 (at top end of ferrule) 36 1/4 (at bottom end of ferrule) 44 1/4 52 1/4 62 7/8 Stripping guide at 72 5/8 and tip is 52.75" (an inch too long for marked size?) The rod has a nice light feeling in hand although it was dark before I untubed it. Almost too dark to cast. I will let anyone interested know how it casts tomorrow. It felt good but I could not see the line moving. Anyone ever seen this model before? I hope to try it out this weekend on little steelies. I am afriad the agate tip top is too small for a modern line. I used a silk to test it tonight.
