    Looking for a split cane rod 4 to 5 weight, 7 to 9 feet long. Three piece with extra tip would be great. Anyone selling anything? Thanks for looking!

    I have a Hardy Phantom 6'10", 5wt in excellent original condition that I would be willing to sell. It would be an easy transition for someone used to graphite. By that I mean it is a fast bamboo rod and handles over-lining well.

    I'd say I have a mid price range...I wish I could go all out on this! It's my 30th birthday soon and I wanted to get something nice for myself.

    TC- please let me know more info on the Hardy Phantom! Thanks for looking and replying everyone!

    It might be helpful to identify your range in dollars instead. Price ranges for bamboo rods tend to be (much) different and generally higher than for graphite ones. .

    New or old is fine, but fishable is key. Not looking to hang it on a wall or refinish it. Three piece or up would be nice, I do lots of backpacking. I would love to stay under $700 if possible, but as you all know- the right rod is the right rod. Sometimes it can't be helped!

    I bumped the two I am trying to sell. You can get a excellent bamboo rod for alot less than $700. There are many classic production rods that are very good fly fishing tools. The two I am selling are in that class. They are very good rods that are ready to fish. I have three in this configuration and I do not fish these two very often.

    Ask others on this board that have bamboo. They know what I am talking about. I prefer W.M. Granger Rods over others such as Heddon and Phillipson, but they are all very good productions rods. All mine are 3 piece with two tips and are 5 weights. They do not need work. They are ready to go. One question you need to ask yourself is what action do you want. W.M Grangers are a meduim action rod which is my preference.

    I would even consider a trade if it is a fiberglass rod, or a Hexagraph rod in the length and weight I desire.

    New guy here.

    I have a couple of bamboo flyrods that I would like to sell. In the 8' - 9' range, 5 & 6 weight. $275 - $325 range.

    Manufactured in the 60's by a German company named DAM.

    Had minor repairs & refinishing done about 6 years ago by Ray Gould, a master bamboo guy from Edmonds. Rods are in very good condition.

    I live in Bellevue, work in Kirkland--could arrange to show you the rods if you are local.

    PM me if interested....

    I have a very nice AJ Thramer (he's a well known contemporary bamboo rod maker from Oregon) 8' 5wt. for sale. It's a medium, to medium fast rod w/brown and tan wraps, custom blued ferrules (he makes his own hardware), uplocking seat w/wood insert. Complete with original sock and tube. $575.
    Let me know if you're interested. Greg

    Hello all, thank you for responding! I work nights and long hours on my feet; so it's hard for me to log into a computer til the morning (or afternoon as the nine to fivers call it). I have tomorrow off so I can check everything out and get back to you all.
    Much obliged,
    Erik

    I have a spare demo rod I built to try out a taper and use for an sample. It is a 7ft 6in two piece with one tip. Nice flamed color, red wraps, red agate stripper, wood and NS reel seat. Based on a well known contemporary builders taper. Cork is a little soiled and it has a couple of minor scrapes in the finish. A good caster can throw a 5 weight line 75 ft with this. It is my favorite taper. No tube. This rod has already caught fish.

    350 picked up in Twisp.

    Kent,

    It's Thramer's "Dx" taper - in his "Grouse Creek" series. It's a nice rod. Greg

    I'm gonna make someone's day...

    E. C. Powell custom 8' 6" hand made bamboo rod. This rod is in mint (and I mean mint) condition. It is a 2 piece rod with a spare Tip section.
    This rod has been in the original sock and metal tube case as long as I have had it and probably as long as my grandfather had it.
    This is a collector's quality rod as I'm sure you know, but is extremely fishable.
    Probably one of the best made rods in existence.

    I'd like $1,000 as I never use it and it is taking up space in my guest bedroom...
    But I'd also be willing to entertain any reasonable offer.

    Craigslist mentality need not apply.

    Thanks
