Re: Old Bamboo Rods
I don't mean to hijack your thread, but I'm in the same boat. I bought 3 Montague rods with some materials and supplies for $30 to my door with the intention of refinishing them for practice. I'm liking the "banty" idea for one of them. I have guides, ferrules, and thread (came with them). What is the first thing I do? Should I strip the old finish off, or just start wrapping guides? I searched for a "how-to" on this, but came up empty. Most of the threads about refinishing bamboo rods talked about what rod/condition they started with, but none were updated with the process or final product. Maybe we can change that this time. Obviously, I'm a complete noob. Thanks.
If you (op) want me to start a new thread, let me know.
