Lastly, I have the bamboo spey rod on my hand and it’s gorgeous and best in any sense. The rod is 6wt 12′ 6″ 3 pieces with splice signs up with and was crafted by Gesit – Gesit Bamboo Rod from Yogyakarta in Indonesia.
Lashing splice collaborates is a type of routine by the steam side prior to fishing, and it was rather satisfying.
The rod felt a lot much heavier than a modern-day graphite rod. Unlike hollow graphite, this bamboo spey rod is made from a strong bamboo. I required a much heavier reel to stabilize the swing weight of the rod.
Unlike a graphite rod where the vibration moistens rapidly after the rod suggestion stops on the forward cast, the bamboo rod is rather bouncy. I have actually cast couple of bamboo rods, both single and two-handed, the sluggish, sluggish and bouncy healing appears to be particular of the bamboo rod. This vibration ends up being more apparent as the rod is longer. Unless I forward cast efficiently with a subtle stop, the rod will vibrate and produce a ‘shock dimple’ on the rod leg of the loop. The rod flexes rather deep, I can feel it on the grip. I need to do couple of casts to make a modification to my stroke prior to I can make a descent cast. The line I utilized was 460 grains/37 feet tummy – long Scandi line with 10 feet Polyleader and 6ft tippet.
Above all, I’m extremely delighted with the rod. It’s another treasured addition to my collection. I believe Gesit did an excellent task. The only little enhancement I want to have on this rod is a longer upper grip. This would go up the fulcrum point couple of inches up and enhance the swing weight balance.
Next, attempt to capture a fish with this rod. Ideally quickly.
