My favorite rod for sure Janne, good for you man, I know you were in the market
Like Ed mentioned, I dont think I have ever cast 2 exactly alike, not re-makes anyway. I have cast a few old ones, Mason has a gorgeous one, that thing is like butter, just a pleasure to hold. Most guys get there tapers from hex-rod or the internet, but how credible are the specs on something you read off the web? You never know if the rod thats being measured is even what you want to replicate, and then even if it is, how much varnish was on it, how accurate was the guy miking it, recording it, etc.
Love to see the pics when you get it, congrats buddy, you deserve it! CJ
