Per Brandin hollow-built six-strip (hex) bamboo rod. 8'3 for a 4 weight line. This rod belonged to Walt Carpenter and was obtained from Per while the two were fishing together many years ago. The rod weighs 3.14 oz. Medium fast dry fly action. Two sections with one tip - originally made this way in 1996. From Per's description of this taper, "At 8'3" and a #4 line, this rod fills the need for a longer rod for spring creeks and smaller flies, but still with a very positive action.
