Making a copy
To many it is a fascinating idea to have a duplicate of ”a real Classic” and today many famous tapers are available on the Web.
But it isn’t that easy; measuring is presumably made on a varnished rod and so the figures are far from exact.
Moreover, most rods were made in quantities and they differ, sample to sample, sometimes quite considerably, so it is difficult to say how close to the original they are.
But the less experienced rod amateur can learn a lot from duplicating other´s work until he has got the skills to calculate his own designs and should not feel ashamed to do so.
