This is the only banty Tom Dorsey recalls making and the only rod he recalls inscribing his name on. This was made as a thank you gift for Bill Ballan after Bill had fulfilled an order of reels for T&T. Unlike most banty rods, this has a wonderful full working taper. The action is similar to item 09. T&T Caenis 6' 6". This Banty is in like new condition.
