Jay,
I won't find out for awhile since I have 4 1/2' of snow on the ground. Putting it together I know it will fit my casting style. This is Mike's favorite taper but he fishes it with a 5wt.

I've cast an 8' 3pc heavily-flamed, red-wrapped rod that Mike uses, I'm pretty sure that its been lined with a 4wt... might be a different rod? It's a really easy rod to cast, medium-action, flexes deeper than the Spittler rods that I have. I like it a lot! I don't really think of Spittler rods as having a typical action.

That's a great rod Dennis and is even more beautiful in person. I thought it was definitely a 4wt when I casted Mike's personal rod in that taper.

Nice Carpenter Quads!!!
Are these the first quads you've owned Vaughan? What do you think of quads as compared to hex?

Dennis,

7’3” rod is a hex with 2 different tips - both 4 wt. This is my first hollow quad and is slice joint rod as well - really nice casting rod as I like it with a wf4 but will cast a wf5 as well.
