    Default Sweetgrass Graphite Rods

    I've been looking at Sweetgrass cane rods for some time now. After Glenn Brackett and Co. left Winston, they opened up Sweetgrass Rods, also in Twin Bridges, MT. They now offer quad, penta and hexagonal hollow-built can rods, that look very nice (I'm seriously considering venturing into bamboo rods; particularly for the small stream fishing that I do here in the Poconos).

    Recently, I've noticed that they've branched out and are now offering both graphite and fiberglass rods, crafted by Sam Druckman. I'm not sure who's rolling the blanks for their graphite rods, but I understand that they're made in the US.

    Does anyone have any experience with the graphite rods from Sweetgrass?

    Having seen a TU show on that shop, I'd love to have a bamboo rod from them. But, there's no way I'd ever be able to afford it. I'll have to check out the glass and graphite rods.

    Sam was the rod designer for Winston. If Sam isn't doing it, I wouldn't put it past them to have Burkheimer roll the blanks.
