Happy to see this new section on the forum. I'm curious how many others use bamboo and if so, what percentage would you say you do use it relative to graphite or glass? I'd say I fish bamboo 90% of the time, with the graphite being used only for the far too rare "tropical" trips I take for bonefish, tarpon and snook. I got started using bamboo when I inherited my grandfathers South Bend and my great aunt and uncle's Heddons (nice tapers BTW for "blue collar rods). I like a couple of Goodwin Grangers I've acquired (an 8642 and a 9050, both "Victory" models) as well as a newer Thramer 4 Wt. I also fish an Orvis Battenkill impregnated in the salt for searuns. Also have an 8 wt. Winston steelhead rod I've yet to fish, and assorted Edwards, a couple of F. Thomas rods, and an old Leonard. I've enjoyed fishing and learning the history of these old rods and have also fallen victim to acquiring and using a whole collection of old reels to go with them. So I'm curious to know what bamboo rods, and what percentage do you all fish them relative to graphite or glass?
