I have a Bruce and Walker rod as described above , which I bought second hand . It is in good condition but I have a feeling that the top section is slightly shorter than it should be , presumably after breaking at the tip . However , the overall length is exactly 11'3" . The top section is 2 inches shorter than the other two sections and measures 45 and 5/8ths inches . If anyone has one of these could you check the measurements to see if the rod is complete . Who knows you might even have sold me the rod ! Not that I'm complaining as it was very inexpensive .
