Default Bamboo rods

I was in Bryson city this morning they had a flyfishing trade show, they had
12-15 booths and there were 2 that build bamboo rods, they both sell
them at reasonable prices of $400-$500 for a rod. I almost bought one
bur still a lot of money, I you want their names just get in touch with me and
will give you their names.

At that price point, I am betting these are finished rods made from Chinese mass produced blanks. Not that there is really anything wrong with that I guess.

Default BAMBOO rods

I don't know were they got supply but both told me they made these and one
even has a class were he teachs how to build them.
Both of these men live in NC not far from Bryson city and I saw the rods, but
they were made pretty good.
They both gave me a card with phone and address, anybody can go see their
work.

I got an e-mail from one builder and the rods are used and rebuild with other rods parts if broken, some are new.
