Hay everyone. I know i'm bumping this thread after a long time, but I'm happy to let everyone know I'm learned a lot working with Denny. Recently I striped the rod down and charted the taper. The rod is a Heddon #17 Black beauty 9' 5/6 wt. I'll be posting new pics as soon as i can. New seat, grip and guides Fully re-wrapped. I have a few rods that we are working on and will update as i go.
