PMQ taper - any recommendations?

06 January 2017 - 12:27 PM

My nephew needs a fly rod, I don't have the time to plane out a normal bamboo blank. Was considering making a PMQ, but would like the rod to be a 7'9" 2 piece rod. I believe the PMQ thread says a taper can be figured based upon using a multiplier of .96 of the hex taper numbers? Anyone have experience with building a longer PMQ, in a 5/6 weight, any taper suggestions? Any ideas? What are some of the favorite 7'9" tapers?
