I would have to agree FlyRed, there's more sense of what I epitomize as "the true fishing experience" by using a crafted bamboo vs a mass-produced fg or graphite. Perhaps it evokes more of an emotional experience for me, as I use the bamboo rod my father built and used when I was a little girl in Montana....but I just can't see myself having such a strong connection with a fg rod. Everytime I use it, I think of memories I had of my father.
