Recently I have been contacted by Luke Bannister, the famous bamboo rodbuilder in the UK, to build a rod on his new glass blank design, made by CTS in New Zealand.
This 7' 4wt. has one of the quickest action I've seen in glass so far. The rod is a clean build overall with light cinnamon wraps tipped darker and black hardware. Reel seat is birds eye maple wood with Lemke uplock hardware.
The rod was also treated with a gorgeous handmade leather case and the combo is really neat.
This rod will become available on Luke's website soon and I look forward to building more of these cinnamon blanks in the future.
