[Cat. 2019] FB 190176 con-sm. The “Companion” rods are great because you have 2 different rods to fish with. The shorter rod handles a DT-4 or 5 line beautifully, while the longer rod works better with a DT-5 or 6. This Companion set has tips that differ by 2 in. in overall length; I tip is 51 in., other is 49 in. You can vary the 2 tips with either butt; they all work fine. Walton Powell always built rods that cast well because of his progressive tapers. I first met Walton in 1949, and bought many of his rods over the years. Both these rods are dead straight; the butt for the shorter rod looks like it was never used, while the grip for the longer rod shows light soiling of the cork. Fine-Near New. $1300
