        I believe he is a member here. Haven't found a website for him, but here is a thread he started on a different board:

            Has anyone purchased, or know aof anyone that may have, a bamboo blank from Anglers Roost (A.R.E)? It looks like his inventory is growing, but I would hate to build on a blank with defects? Thanks
            Tight lines!!

              Don't know anyone, but Anglers Roost Enterprises boo blanks are all made in China. Thus the low cost. Their generic blanks are $75 to $79. Their "Presidential Blanks" based on famous tapers from the past are $125. According to ARE they are defect free. Just keep in mind that these may be perfectly fishable but will have little value in the future. They might be just as good an investment as say buying a low-end vintage rod like a South Bend or a Montague tho--cuz they aren't going to have any future value either. American boo blanks are going to start around $400.

                    I was looking around for decent blanks and components to build a rod. One of the forums mentioned Headwaters Bamboo Rod Co. I checked their website and ended up buying a 7ft, 4 wt based on a Payne 100 taper. They have a 30 day return policy and a lifetime warranty on defects. Price for first time buyers was $315 for a two piece, two tip rod. These are obviously made in China but the quality was surprisingly good. Best of all, it cast like a dream. I don't think I could build a rod for that money. Anyone looking for a decent cane rod to fish, not collect should them out. This is going to be my North Georgia small stream rod. (but I'll still keep my Sage 3 wt near by)
