If I recall, Bill told our group that you have to put aside the modern notions of the "weight" of your rod when it comes to bamboo. I believe he gave an example of a 6 weight bamboo being similar to a 4 weight Sage.
I built a 7-9 four wt. I love it, but I recognize that while it's wonderful on the firehole, it's not something I'm going to fish on the Madison at 3 dollar.
