Hi Vlad,

I do enjoy the classic setting a lot too! This site make me feel "I need to get a bamboo rod" : )

The finish of the bamboo rod which this builder makes is a URUSI (URUSI=lacquer tree=JAPAN)

I hear from a friend that it is a very good rod!

Thanks for the information Hitoshi! That is very neat! I don't even know he use the native material. Awesome. I saw his article in a FF magzine when I was visiting Japan. The reel and rod is just wonderful... I would say... as good as Hitoshi's collection : ) I am getting into those nice reels after seeing Hitoshi's fine collection! : )
