Phillipson Dry Fly Special

The exchange of tapers forum is for classic and personally developed tapers. The definition of classic tapers are those tapers that were developed by rodmakers that are no longer alive. Please understand that rod makers who have developed their tapers, and are active in the community, should not have their tapers cloned, or shared, without their permission, please refrain for asking for those tapers as it infringes on the maker.

If its a Dry Fly Special yes but the DFS has an 18/64ths butt ferrule and 12/64th tip ferrule. The non-DFS taper rods in this length are usually 17 and 11 64ths.
