This is a 3 pc spinning bamboo rod measuring about 12.5' when put together.
The condition of this rod is good considering its 'age'..
However the guides are pretty used up.
All the guides stripped and the loose varnish removed. Light sanding was done on the bamboo blanks before a new coat of polyurethane was applied on it.
The set of new guides are to take their places.
The old cork grip removed.
The reel seat removed and the old glue residue on the timber handle was scrap off.
New cork rings for the grip.
New handles done.
Guides wrapped except for the tip. Missed out during my order for the guides.
It has to wait for now..
And finally the last parts was delivered after 3 weeks. The tip top was fixed in place.
A coat of cork seal was applied to the cork handle.
That is the completed BAMBOO SPEY ROD totally rebuilt from an old bamboo spinning rod.
