I have the butt section for an early 1914 Payne rod. Reel seat says EF Payne Maker, Highland Mills NY. 32.5" butt section has the 6 thread signature wrap along with intermediates. Ferrule measures .192 / 12/64. Deducted .006 for finish.

Trying to identify the complete rods taper, any ideas?

 

ferrule - butt section

30" - .204

29 - .209

24" - .224

19" - .244

14" - .269

9" - .339

8 1/2" grip

All the tapers I have are heavier at the 30" mark. Seems like it should be a 3pc 8' rod. The 200L is .222 at the 60" mark according to what Ive got, don't remember where I copied the numbers from though,

Yes, I agree about it being an 8' 3 pc rod but the grip and reelseat are so tiny almost makes me wonder if it could have been

a 5 1/2 rod? Grip is built using 5/16 " cork rings and overall is 8 1/2 long which includes the all metal reelseat.

If it was a 5 1/2' rod, seems to be pretty beefy. Id think it would have a much smaller measurement at the ferrule. the Payne 95 taper I've got on file is .201 at the grip, and .126 at the ferrule. Its a 6' rod

This taper has a slight swell in it also, I think your right this has to be an 8' 3 piece rod. I checked the Payne tapers on hexrod, the 200L doesn't seem close but the 202 taper for an early 1920's rod is closer. The 201 is similar but uses a 15/64 ferrule - this section includes a 12/64 so neither of these tapers are correct?
