This one is from 2004, a 6'7''#5 with graphite inserts and spigot joint.. Local bamboo(not tonkin) Used champagne stoppers for the grip and reelseat insert. Graphite like - extra fast action.

This one has not a spigot joint but is built with bamboo and graphite combination - "Carbonica" 7'#4, built in 2001, local bamboo with graphite inserts and "Easton" aluminum ferrules, champagne cork stoppers for the grip and r.seat :)
