    So I though I’d share if any of you haven’t seen it.

    I don’t know how long this has been around, hopefully not long.

    I found that about a week ago while poking around for rod blanks.

    Maybe we ought to start up a new thread for ‘Steals and Deals’ to list any closeouts or great sales we find online.

    $300 bamboo rods? China?

    LOL.. yeah, some of those ‘steals’ are more like theft on the part of the seller. But hey, all the bamboo comes from China, right? So they’re just cutting out the middle man (the one with rod building skill) and passing the savings on to us.

    I think Brett has a point about the middle man.

    Hey everyone,

    I noticed this thread and thought I should mention what happened to one of my customers.
    The fella thought he was getting a bamboo rod for around $200-$300 and it ended up being a graphite rod (of poor quality) with a blank coloured/painted like bamboo.

    On another note, we just got the whole lineup of Echo Glass rods in at the shop, and the 6’9″ 3 weight seems like it would be a lot of fun. Have any of you guys used one?

    Thanks for the info. on your customer. I guess we need to look at things a little closer than normal. I’m not sure about Echo. Heard some good things, but for some reason I don’t even give them a second glance. I think it’s the lengths of the rods that throw me off for the weight of the rods.

    I always thought Echo was similar to Blue Halo. And would probably equate them with a Butter Stick. Nothing wrong with them, but I’m usually shopping a little higher up the glass food chain.

    Crazy about the customer getting a painted graphite rod. It didn’t say Hexagraph anywhere on it, by any chance? In which case I might take it off his hands for only a small loss on his part.

    Hey Brett,
    I didn’t see the rod, just spoke to him after he received it. I haven’t seen the fellow for awhile, I’m sure I’ll see him once more of the ponds thaw.
