Thanks, that is very helpful. It is a very interesting model they have. They seem to focus on making "Banty" rods out of piece parts from old rods, but I have never been a big fan of Banty's as most of the ones I have come across are not great casting rods.

The site says that when they come across a rod that is whole, but needing refinishing work, they refurb them to like new condition and sell them as their "R" series rod. You never know with something like this, you might be able to score a very nice fly rod made from a good quality blank for a decent price. It says they can tell you who made the blanks for these rods if you ask.

One more thing, the fact that they are authorized distributors for both AJ Thramer and Rolf Baginski rods tells me that at least they know what a quality bamboo rod looks like as these are both highly respected modern builders.

Good luck and welcome to our little slice of bamboo heaven here on NGTO. If you end up buying a bamboo rod from these guys, please post pics in a new post as we would love to see what you got!

Have you guys heard of this maker or seen his work? Coldwater Collectables is selling a model called "Pine River". They also have a nice looking used Orvis for about the same price.

Pennington rods are made by some guy out in Iowa. I have never seen one in person, but I have heard they are well built and decent rods for the money. The Orvis that Singlemalt is selling is a nice rod, and you don't see too many Orvis rods in the 3/2 configuration. Both rods are 6 weights and would be good all purpose bamboo rods.

One thing to consider is resale value. The Pennington rod will probably never be considered a collectible and thus it's value on the used market will be nominal. On the other hand, the older Orvis rods have really retained their value with time and you will most likely be able to sell it later on for at least what you bought it for.

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
