Telling you this is an eight foot five weight with size 13 ferrules might give you a hint about this taper.  This fast action rod can also handle a six weight, thus there are five signature wraps on the grip side and six signature wraps on the stripping guide side.  One might even call it an 8013 Guide model, or at least my interpretation of what an 8013 Guide might have been.  It features ferrules and reel seat made in my shop,  brownish gold wraps tipped black, an elm burled reel seat filler, cigar grip, and oversized NOS agate stripping guide.  And no, the tips are not bent!  Camera parallax got me!
