I wish that they had video of someone actually casting with one.... I've never seen a 1/2 or 3/4 weight rod, no less one made from braided bamboo!

The word 'unique' doesn't quite cover it.

It sort of looks like a three year old tied a bunch of long twigs together.. but that's just me.

Eehhh...uhhh....dunno about this one. Definitely "unique". 650 Bucks for 4 feet of rod? Wacky!

wow...they really need to take better pictures and make that website look a little nicer. For that price, you'd think it would look better.

That first picture looks like it's warped.

They're in CO...I might have to stop by and cast one of those rods...and report back...

Weird. Seems a tad over priced.

Exactly my thoughts on the cheaply done web site......doesn't do much to promote their product and at $650 they are pretty pricey especially when it is only 4 ft long. It would be great if you can get a chance to see one in person and actually get to cast it.

I thought the same thing, particularly found the picture of the contemplative fisherman with a 9' rod under arm confusing after I read that rod they are selling 4 feet. I guess it would look really weird to see the "quintessential" rod-under-arm shot if said rod was only 4' long.
