Have been using this Rod and am very happy with it. Got to do some dry fly fishing and fished some nymphs, streamers and bugers. It's a nice Rod for the small streams I'm fishing. The 5 weight is heavy enough to throw a streamer with some weight and light enough to dry fly fish. Now I just have to find some Trout.lol

I did it for the same reason. Perhaps someday I will buy a high end bamboo rod like you did. I wasn't about to drop $2K and say, hey, I don't care for this at all. If I hate my $200 bamboo rod I'll get over it.

Nice thing about these Chinese boos...I don't worry about breaking or trashing them. I can slide down boulders, thrash through the brush, and I don't worry about damaging the rod. And, they fish just fine, thank you...
