check how resistant your bamboo is before starting to build the rod
Thanks for chiming in.
I forgot about that. I followed that thread and was sorely disappointed when you broke the rod! I should have kept following, I just watched the videos. totally cool and I'm sure a huge part of the inspiration for my project, subconsciously anyway.
Is version 2 still up and running? What can I do to make it less brittle? Maybe oil it?
