He often exhibited alongside Jim Schaaf, another California rod builder. Sigman also offered classes on cane rod building. He did not make a large number of rods, but they were all exquisitely finished with the highest craftsmanship. He preferred to sell his rods to fishermen, not collectors. He did make a series of Special Edition rods in the 1990’s which featured wooden rod tubes of the same wood as the reel seat. The original plan was 10 sets of 3 rods with tubes and reel seats of walnut, ebony, and rosewood. The sets sold out to overseas buyers before production was underway. He was disappointed that these rods were being collected, not fished. He stopped making rods 2003-2004. Much of the weight of this rod is in the N/S reel seat and the burled wood extension butt. With a lighter reel seat, I think the rod would weigh less than 6 oz. The rod is very powerful, with lots of cane in the mid-sections. It can belt out a very long cast with a WF-10 line. The rod has hardly been fished. All section straight and full-length; very light soiling on the grip. Fine-Very Fine. $475
