The bamboo rods I build is not a rod that can be used while bearing the weight. I myself have used many antique bamboo rods. Depending on the action, I got tired while fishing with the weight of the ferrule and blank itself.
The old seams may come off, but if the old ones are scratched, the fibers will tear and cracks will grow, making them unusable. In that case, repair is impossible, and buying a cheap product is a loss. Also, the benefits of hollow build rods are endless.

In the end, I couldn't find anything I was happy with, so I started designing and making my own.

For many rod collectors and people like me who have had many rods and weren't satisfied, there is nothing that makes them happier than being the last rod.
