For sale here is a Walter Brunner "Type Gebetsroither" bamboo rod. 7' 2/2 for a 5 or 6 weight line. Made in 1986. Mint original condition. The rod appears to be unused. All sections are full length and straight. Black silk wraps, staggered ferrule style, fast parabolic action, black anodized sliding band. The rod weighs 3.45 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 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.
The Pezon et Michel Supermarvel Type Hans is the French answer to this Brunner rod. Hardy's Continental Special also shared similar casting characteristics and features the staggered ferrule design.
