Default Strip built fly rods on the lathe

I came across a book on the web call "Making strip built flyrods from various woods on the lathe by john betts". These things are supposed to cast great and take a fraction of the time to make compared to bamboo, but have a similar old world feel. I've been wanting to expand on my ff hobies and am thinking about giving it a shot. Have any of you made a wooden rod or cast/fished one. Just a bit curious.
