Just finished the strips for a butt and 1 tip section of a Garrison 209 7.5ft 5 wt rod. Apex to apex are within 0.002 of each other and the numbers match the taper. Gotta love it when it all comes together. :)

Nice going - where do you get the bamboo?

It's Tonkin cane from Andy Royer before he passed. By chance I ordered a few 10 clum bundles so it could "season" in the garage rafters. That was before I'd heard of Andy's medical issues. I believe his wife Candice has taken over the business now that he has passed. You can do a search for "The Bamboo Broker". The other place would be Golden Witch but I've never ordered anything from them so wouldn't be able to say anything about them.
