Bamboo Blanks
Blanks are a great option if you are interested in building your own bamboo rod but would prefer not to deal with the cane work. Building a rod from a bamboo blank is no different than building one from graphite or fiberglass and requires no special tools or finishing techniques.

Blanks are available in hexagonal and quadrate geometries in any taper or action that I have, or I'm always happy to use a taper you provide.  Blanks are available for both freshwater and saltwater use.

Like my rods, all blanks are top quality, made from start to finish by myself here in my shop in Alaska.
All blanks come standard with the following features:

I have access to over 1500 classic and custom tapers in just about any length, line weight, and configuration. Click on a link below to view some of the available tapers in either hexagonal or quadrate construction. If you don't have a specific taper in mind, just get in touch and we can figure out the best for your fishing needs.

I do not currently sell hardware such as seats, grips, or guides. For tons of options and the finest quality components get in touch with Mike at Snake Brand Guides, and/or Chet and Alice at Genuine Bellinger.
