Tube. Cat. 2017] 17-0105 con-jg. – My friend James Green has been crafting exceptional glass rods for many years. I have sold many of his rods to satisfied customers. Now he is tuning his craft to hand-planed bamboo rods. This rod in modeled after a PAYNE 197 taper, with a little more cane in the tip. I just cast this rod with a Sylk DT-5F. It has an exceptionally smooth progressive action which handles the line from extreme close-in up to maximum distances. I think most casters would find this a very satisfying rod to fish. The workmanship makes a quiet statement of simplicity, with excellent bamboo work and varnish. NEW. $895
