Does anyone have a taper for an E.C. Powell 9' 3 piece 4 wt? If so would you please post it. (Jon Holland)

I found a Powell 3 piece rod that looks like a 4 wt in the Herter's Tapers on Reed Curry's site.

The original should look like this with adjustments made for under ferrules and tips etc. given in 6" settings.

Converting it to normal 5" setting should look like this:
