This rod took a long time to finish, and I ended up scraping a few sections due to glue lines and other problems. Quads are deceiving, they look easier, but are substantially harder to build than a hex rod. In the end it all adds to the fun. This rod is a 7’ 4 wt based on an Edwards taper. The ferrules are drawn from tubing then the base is re-formed with a square punch. The rod seems to cast a Cortlant 4 DT peach pretty well, but stream time and real fishing are the real test.
