New Tom Morgan Interview

Here’s a fine interview with a lot of inside info on bamboo rod building by one of modern masters: Tom Morgan. “Almost all of the modern graphite rod designs are a tip over butt ferrule. The butt, that is smaller in diameter and thick walled, fits inside a tip, that is bigger in diameter and thin walled. It’s not impossible to design a smooth casting rod with this configuration but it’s nearly so because of the inherent difference in weight and flex.” On RodBuildingForum.com. (Thanks to reader John DeVault for this link.)
