Here is a 7' #4/5 weight. Also posted on the other forum. It is based on Ray Gould's Strong Special taper. This is fast rod. I made reel seat hardware and guides from brass. The rod is hollow scalloped and wrapped in amber tipped with classic chestnut.

Next rod on the list to build is a Payne 102. Anyone have an original guide space chart for this rod. Any help is appreciated.


7' 10" 3/4

Here is a 7'10" 3/4 weight. I made the reel seat and spacer from Spanish Cedar and Duronze. The stripping guide is REC. Wraps are Gossamer with tipping only at the cork. I usually make my stepdown ferrules but, I had a set of Rush River ferrules so I used those. Rod is also hollow scalloped through the butt section.

Thanks for looking,
