Just off the forms

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.

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.
