A special rod for a special purpose...  Jim travels to Montana from North Carolina late each summer to fish the big bugs and wanted a powerful rod capable of handling hoppers in the wind. The parabolic taper casts beautifully up close flexing only in the upper end of the rod.  Add a little line and a second flex point kicks in giving the rod tremendous power in the hands of a smooth and capable caster.  My thanks to Paul Young for making these parabolic rods popular among bamboo rod owners. This eight foot five weight is two pieces, but has three tips.
