    First Bamboo in sixty years

    Kit arrived the evening before a hunting trip. It appears to be of excellent quality. I hope to build it soon and try a bamboo rod again after a lapse of sixty years.

    Bamboo

    Interesting build and rewarding when finished. It is easy to line up the guides on the hexagonal blank, but you need to be aware of the need to line the reel seat to a flat surface for the stripper guide when you assemble the grip. Finished rod is going to host my 1978 Hardy Marquis- retro plus!

  • It's Bamboo. Beautiful, tough, slow and classic
