Brunner, Walter - "Type Traun Spezial" Bamboo Rod 7'8" 2/2 5-6wt

For sale here is a Walter Brunner "Type Traun Spezial" bamboo rod (this model is extremely difficult to find). 2.35 meters in length (7'8"), 2/2 for a 5 or 6 weight line. Made in 1979. Excellent plus condition. All sections are full length and straight. Black silk wraps, staggered ferrule design, fast parabolic action (not as fast as the Gebetsroither model), black anodized sliding band and cap. The rod weighs 3.9 oz. Walter Brunner's rods are much sought after and extremely hard to find on the resale market. The rod comes with its original bag and original black labeled tube with leather appointments on both ends.

Hans Gebetsroither was the head keeper on the famous river Traun in Austria and was famous for his casting abilities and style. The Traun is a big river and a powerful rod (and caster!) was needed to reach the far lies and to cope with the big fish found there.

There's a great write-up of Mr. Brunner here.
