Rod builders need options when they are creating their own blank.

I offer 3 Stages of Bamboo Blank Construction

Your goal is to create a bamboo fly rod you're proud to signing your name on. I want to support you in this process!

I have listed the various stages of bamboo blank option and prices below.

 

Creating your own Bamboo Fly Rod

In the strings blanks are for the rod builder who wants to start at the very beginning of constructing a rod. This is a great way to learn about bamboo rod building.

Seriously a great option for your first rod!

The processes of building an "in the strings" blank to finish out are:

  • Remove the binding strings
  • Sand the bamboo to perfection
  • Cut the rod to length (The blanks will have measurement marks to aid in placement.)
  • Straighten the rod
  • Fit, lap and glue ferrules

Cost:

A 2 piece 1 tip in the strings blank: $220

A 2 piece 2 tip in the strings blank: $265

Sanded blanks are for the rod builder ready for the next stage in rod building.  It's one step closer to your completed rod.

Stages of construction for sanded blanks:

  • Cut the rod to length (The blanks will have measurement marks to aid in placement.)
  • Straighten the rod
  • Fit, lap and glue ferrules

Cost:

A sanded 2 piece 2 tip blank: $295
