I haven't posted much lately, life seems to have gotten in the way.

Now I find myself a bachelor by geography. I just started a new job and will have 9ish months of bore dome to cope with 5 days a week. The weekends are a 4 hr drive home and then packing and getting stuff in storage, then 4hrs back to work Monday morning.

I have been thinking of getting into a bamboo rod, but I haven't found one I could afford.

So I've decided to build one, either from a vintage that needs help or a new blank. The only problem I have come across are that most of the new blanks I can afford are Imported, not saying that's good or bad, I'm just not certain. I would almost rather have a vintage, cheap and fix it up, but I hate dealing with ebay for something like this....

I guess I'm just looking for opinions at the moment.....
