Hexagonal Tapers
Custom Hex Tapers
Custom Tapers are tapers that have been either made from scratch or modified from an existing classic taper.  Various methods are used to design and modify tapers from computer simulations, to simple beam calculations to building and testing prototypes. 

I offer many different configurations in the various custom tapers so I don't list them all.  If you are interested in something specific and don't see it on the taper list, just check with me in regards to the details and I'm sure I have a model that will fit your needs.
Classic Hex Tapers
Classic Tapers are those that have been designed by rodmakers and companies who either no longer exist or whose tapers have become public domain.  Classic tapers are usually pretty specific when it comes to attributes such as length, line weight and number of sections but in some cases configuration adjustments can be made.  For example, the Dickerson 8013 can be made into a 3 piece rod fairly easily and it takes very well to hollowing. 

If you are interested in a specific classic taper but don't see it listed, please ask as I very likely am able to make it.  I have dividted up the classic tapers down into line weights then further by 'speed', or a rough indication of their action.  For specifics and differences, please get in touch and I'll be happy to go over the details with you.
