Technology of bamboo vs graphite......
Put the tip of a bamboo rod on the floor and step on it.
Repeat with a graphite rod.
Then take the bamboo rod fishing and use the butt from the graphite for a tomato stake. (the graphite tip will be too far gone for a stake.)
Mike Clark LOVES to do this little demo to convince the "bamboo is fragile" crowd.
Newer isn't always better.
