The A-818 came in 4 lengths. 7'9", 8', 8'6" and 9" and they all had the Kwik-Taper action described as;
"Semi-enlarged butt diameter size with less extreme tapering of blade to provide power with action for general purpose fresh and salt water fishing."
They handled 7/8 floating lines. (HCH)
The 3 shorter rods were good for a WF9S and the 9' rod could handle a WF10S
20 bucks is a good price.... but only if you use it.
