One Thousand Dollars? For a Fishing Pole?
Right? But the bottom line is that it takes a long time to make a bamboo rod by hand;–like, 40-50 hours of long time. Subtract the price of materials, do the math, and you’ve got an hourly rate that’s not very impressive at all. With that said…
My rods start around $1000 and go up from there. Options are too varied for me to be any more specific than that, here on the website.
If I have specific, finished rods in stock, I’ll post them here, along with a price.
Bear in mind that I have lots of things and options available, including, but not limited to:
- Gold work
- Rattan grips
- Bamboo spinning rods
- Intermediate wraps
- Unfinished, ferruled bamboo blanks
- (Gasp!) Graphite rods and all sorts of rod repairs
I will make rods to your specifications and at your price level, so please contact me with any specific questions.
