Nope...the fall was during the decadent 1980's with the Hexagraph rod. Brought partly upon us by the devils E. C. Powell and Jim Bruce and Ken Walker...

That said, I've never cast one but sure would try it—I've been known to sin.

And yaw without sin may cast the first stone (hexagraph, I mean)...

Hi Cardo,

Back in the 90's I met a fellow using a 'Hex' rod, it was hard to discern it from bamboo and I thought it was until he confessed what it was. If I recall correctly the rod was 8' for a #5 line and he allowed me to cast with it. It has been a long time but I seem to remember having no qualms with the way it worked and it was the perfect image of a cane rod. I guess you could say that they were the 'Golden Calf' of fly rods

It's good to see that my post has been accepted as tongue in cheek humor as it was meant to be. Not bad for an off the cuff reply without disparaging anyone's favorite brand of rod.
