Makes sense to me.canerodscom wrote: ↑07/07/20 08:34’s just quicker and easier to buy a coupla graphite blanks Jeff. That’s all. Why waste a week building test rod blanks when I can buy nice, consistent graphite blanks and be wrapping by this weekend? So for me it’s simply a question of do I spend a week or more building bamboo test rods or a few hours and a few dollars on graphite test rods?
If the guides pass muster on graphite then maybe I’ll jump on the bandwagon.

For my test I used a bamboo blank and 'temp wrapped' some Fuji TKTTG guides on the blank using sewing thread and afterward did the same with Alconite guides. Since I'm not doing a finish quality job it takes less than a minute to wrap a guide.
A side by side comparison with two identical rods would have been better.
