For sale here is a Per Brandin hollow-built six-strip (hex) bamboo rod. 8'3 for a DT4 line. The rod weighs 3 1/8 oz. Two sections with two tips. Made in 2005. From Per's description of this taper, "At 8'3" and a #4 line, this rod fills the need for a longer rod for spring creeks and smaller flies, but still with a very positive action. It has become the rod of choice for me and several other very experienced anglers on rivers such as the Henry's Fork and Missouri where smaller flies are the norm. The extra length of this rod compared to more traditional bamboo rods casting a #4 line gives this rod an edge in casting and line control."The rod features Per's typical flared wells grip, reel seat with a mahogany spacer and oxidized cap & ring. The rod also features Per's ultra-truncated 'micro' swiss style ferrules. Wraps are cinnamon with black tipping at the ferrules, tip-top, and above the winding check. Comes in Per's brass-capped tube, made in-house and the original bag. The rod is in excellent original condition, showing some bluing loss to the female ferrule and tip tops, which is the easiest fix of any cosmetic defect on a rod. There are also some slight marks in the varnish from normal use.
You don't see Per's amazing rods on the resale market very often, much less this very popular taper, so don't let this one escape your grasp!
