Nope. It's not long enough for anything. It might push me over the edge into pen-making, just to get rid of the stuff. :roll: :lol: Anyway, greenheart fishing rod? I though bamboo was the stuff?Scott":1apqjl19 said:
Long time ago, before you were around Alf, in the '50s/'60s greenheart was commonly used for fishing rods, sometimes for the whole rod, but often for the tip section of a 2/3 piece rod, the rest comprising whole cane. The alternative, and much better quality, rods were made from split cane. Only one species of cane, tonkin cane, was suitable for splitting. Greenheart and split cane was used for coarse fishing rods but only the finest split cane was used for trout and salmon rods.Alf":2jgner7c said:Anyway, greenheart fishing rod?
