Several weeks ago I began undertaking a bamboo rod restoration project. I had no preconcieved ideas what I was going to do with the rod. It did have some age to it although not what anyone would consider a collectors item. I decided to remove everything and just start over with the blanks. I ordered my ferrules, stepdown, and the rod has three tips so extra cost there. I was somewhat taken back at the cost of the ferrules and really wondered If I had made a wise choice dollars and cents wise to completely restore this rod. It will never be worth what I will have in it.

The answer is yes, it is worth it to me. The time I have fishing with it is the return on investment.

Here lieth the value.
