Yes, I did it again.
This rod is the 2nd edition of my "Golden Trout"
It's a three piece, 8ft, #4/5, hollow built with integrated bamboo ferrule.






Best regards,
Michael

Yes Michael, You Did It again!! thumbsup.gif Beautiful stick!

The integrated bamboo ferrules look like "the slim type"... Is the wall thickness less than 1mm? Is the thread silk or nylon?

Thanks rsa.

I used silk for the wraps.
Yes, its the streamlined-ferrule.
Wall thickness is 0.90mm.

Best regards, Michael

Not familiar with Zebrano- where did you get it? Love the grain and colors! clapping.gif

Hello John,

I bought it from a woodstore one year ago, to let build a table for the livingroom.
These are the rest pieces of it.

Best regards, Michael
