Many people asked me for a longer version of the Perfectionist taper. This is it. Will fish anything." 8' 2/2 for a 4 weight line. Near mint condition. All rod sections and straight and full-length. Oxidized cap and ring reel seat over a gorgeous wood spacer. Cigar grip. The rod weighs 4 1/8 oz. with size 14/64 Super-Z type ferrules. Medium fast parabolic action.
