Jim Reams Bamboo Rods

Tom Chandler of Trout Underground wrote another of his insightful reviews yesterday, this time on the bamboo rods of Jim Reams, who lives and crafts cane on California’s Fall River. As Chandler notes, Reams uses the hollow-built method on all of his rods: “Ask any accomplished builder why they hollow build, and most will tell you it’s not a weight issue, but one of performance. Removing the pithy center portion eliminates non-contributing mass, speeding dampening and improving performance.”
