Im new to the forum. I just purchase a beauty of a bamboo rod at a garage sale. It has a very ornate butt cap that has 3 letter C's intertwined. Does anyone have any idea who the maker is? Thanks in Advance

Welcome to the forum. If you can't post the photo, tell us what the wraps in front of the grip are. In old Bamboo rods those are called signiture wraps. Each builder had his or her own design to say who made them. Give us the order starting at the grip. Tell us how wide and what color they are. There is a book a friend of mine has that has a list of signiture wraps, I'll look and see if it is listed.

We are not allowed to directly attach photos on this site. You need to upload them to a site like photo bucket and then either hit the yellow square icon with the mountains above the box you write your post in. In photobucket you can also copy and patse a direct postable link which starts off with [IMG] and then ends with [/IMG].
