Cross Sylph (Bataviakill)

Length: 7ft 2-pc
Line weight: 7 DT
This rod amazed all who handled it at the Catskills Gathering. On paper, and to the eye of several experienced rodbuilders , it looks like a 5 weight taper, but it competently cast a 7 weight for considerable distance. While I haven't charted the rod yet, It looks like this is explained by a strong middle. Look at the jump from 42" to missed the first part of the discussion and only heard it identified as a Cross Sylph, but the Taper sheet calls it a Bataviakill.

Thanks to Tom Smithwick for supplying this taper
