Default Re: Bamboo Tapers?

Thanks for the responses!

Could anyone tell me in what units we are measuring the stresses upon the fly rod?

The online taper archive lists these as F [b] . Is this foot pounds?

I have slept since my last physics course, I realize Garrison and Carmichael listed these in ounces per square inch.

Also, I am interested in a four piece rod. Would this have any bearing on your recommendations?

Thanks for any and all input!
