SKU: VFT10535

For sale here is a Walter Brunner "Type Gebetsroither Super" bamboo rod. 2 meters in length (6'6"), 2/2 for a 5 weight line. Made in 1976. Near mint condition having been fished sparingly. All sections are full length and one tip has a very slight set. Black silk wraps, staggered ferrule design, fast parabolic action, black anodized sliding band and cap. The rod weighs 3.2 oz. Walter Brunner's rods are much sought after and extremely hard to find on the resale market. The rod comes with its original bag and black labeled tube with leather appointments on both ends.

Hans Gebetsroither was the head keeper on the famous river Traun in Austria and was famous for his casting abilities and style. The Traun is a big river and a powerful rod (and caster!) was needed to reach the far lies and to cope with the big fish found there.

There's a great write-up of Mr. Brunner and this particular rod here - see page 4.
