Default Re: Old Bamboo Rods

On the first rod, can't see all the ferrules, but the ones shown look fine to me.
The same with the seat and grip.
The only cost (hopefully) would be 5-6 bucks for a set of guides plus some varnish.
Barring any unforeseen problems, a worth while project in my book.... especially if it's a first time practice/re-build

You could probably even salvage ferrules from the Japanese rod.... they're chromed brass and wouldn't be as nice as the nickle silver ones there now, but we're not expecting much anyway.
