i'd trust these blanks, only because they're offered up by hook and hackle. I HAVE NOT used them, but am very interested in them:

take it for what it's worth. They are US made blanks. Hook and Hackle has never let me down.

What cheap bamboo rods do you use? Thanks for the website, its very useful so far.


i collect sport king rods.they were montgomery wards store brand.most of the rods were built by horrocks ibbotson,which was a mass producer.H-I rods are very poorly thought of but i like their sport king models.

i am not suggesting you look for a sport king bamboo rod.i happen to collect them(i have four SK rods and about as many sport king reels)because i enjoy them,i'm not claiming they are any good.sport kings often need ferrule work done .

i also fish shakespeare bamboo.

you can get longer and heavier bamboo rods cheaper.usually an eight and a half foot six weight is going to be much cheaper than ,say a seven and a half foot four weight.

don't forget,fighting a fish on bamboo is very different than most plastic rods.a six weight bamboo feels more like a 3 or four weight graphite rod when you're fighting the fish.

if you're anywhere near philly ,you are welcome to try my rods.

good luck.
