6ft 4wt 4piece Backpacking rod

It's a backpacking rod, so I didn't put too much time into cosmetics. It's a nice casting rod, and the sections are 18 1/4 inches long. Aluminum ferrules.

I make my own aluminum ferrules.
The taper is of my own design, my theory is with a short rod more of the length should be involved in the cast. The short lever arm and light weight will make it feel fast even if the stress chart looks like a slow taper. This one is actually a parabolic taper. I also forgot to add it's also a penta, five sided.
Can't hardly wait to get out hiking and fishing again.
