description: $3,650.00 Sold listed on: June 8, 2008 Edward Barder Rod Co - 3964 type: Bamboo Again uncompromising Perfection from the Edward Barder Rod Co. Precise proprietary tapers incorporate fine tips that protect fine tippets and promote an med/fast action that is very crisp, with excellent damping qualities and the ability to cast a tight, accurate loop. The middle third of our rods are designed so that they don't collapse when the rod is loaded during medium to long distance casts. Our swelled butts are something of a trademark. They look even better in the flesh than in pictures. They have the most elegant and symmetrical shape possible. Such swells are not easily achieved, but they add greatly to the aesthetic qualities of our rods, and help to direct the angler's casting stroke with authority. All fly rods come with a pair of perfectly mirrored tips, to be alternated in use from day to day. Culms are carefully selected from his very large stock of seasoned Tonkin Cane. This is some of the best you'll ever see! No blemishes ever go out as I have seen from some of the finest rod from other rod builders. They are flame tempered by hand, which drives out excess moisture and greatly increases the resilience and durability of the bamboo. Grain-split, the bamboo strips have their nodes hand pressed, straightened and staggered in the 3 X 3 configuration. Tapers are precisely milled to tolerances of +/- one thousandth of an inch. The six segments are seamlessly bonded with heat resistant, waterproof adhesive. Our seasoned and properly straightened blanks have a distinctive rich honey tone. Butt caps are discreetly engraved with our logo and finely knurled to match the sliding band and grip check. Reel seats are made from our seasoned stock of highly figured Provencal olive wood, mortised to accept a reel foot perfectly and finished to a deep gloss. Handles are turned from champagne-grade cork shives and are mounted with nickel silver grip checks and elegant winding checks. Silk guide whippings are fully transparent and have the merest hint of olive tan and are tipped with super-fine tan silk. Non-cracking tan silk whippings secure the ferrule splints. We make our ferrules from the best hard-drawn 18% nickel silver. They are hand-lapped to a perfect fit and are furnished with a stopper turned from the same wood as the reel seat. Varnish used is the very best exterior quality and is both flexible and durable. Hand-applied, the resulting lustrous gloss finish is flawless. Each rod has its model number and line rating inscribed on its underside in Indian ink, just ahead of the swelled butt. The tips are numbered too, just ahead of the ferrule whippings, and the tipping at the tip-tops are green for the No 1 & red for No 2.
