    I have trouble keeping up with your shiftiness. You is one tricky son of a bitch.

    However, MacFRAUD, you can't trick me about this Granger of yours.

    ALLIGATORED VARNISH and DAMAGED TIPS.

    ACQUIRED FOR 450 DOLLARS, and RAFFLED TO OBTAIN CONSIDERABLE PROFIT.

    ALL THE WHILE, CLAIMING IT WAS FOR CHARITY!

    BWAAAHAHAHAHHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHA!

    WE SHALL NEVER FORGET.

    How am I being shifty? Its a simple question..can you answer it...and can you answer the other one I posed about Ronbo. A man who clearly knows much more about Bamboo fly rods than you or I. So can you answer the questions or not

    Agates were around before tungsten. The old silk lines would cut through anything else. Some of the old reels also had agate line guards. Granger's bring a big price for production rod.

    Re: A high quality bamboo rod

    The first guides used were nothing more than steel rings attached to the rod with a strap, they were not very good and fell out of favor quickly.
    next up were what were called trumpet guides that were basicly metal tubes that were flared on both ends, these were better but heavy.
    Then came the agate guides which were more durable and added a nice touch to the bamboo rods. the most popular colours availble first were white and red.
    the agate guides became standard on bamboo rods and really enhanced the beauty of a rod. The Mildrum guide was next up, it was much cheaper and easier to produce and become standard on lower quality production rods, these guides were very durable and 1/4 the price of agate guides. some companies even went to a snake guide to cut costs when snakes became available.
    they are actualy the newest guide selection to come around besides the ceramic single foot availble now.
    Now to answer the question. I build all my rods with Agate striper guides. It is purely astetic as the mildrum guides will outlast any agate and the agates are more suseptable to damage.
    In my opnion there is nothing like a beautiful agate guide mounted on a fine bamboo rod and is the only striping guide I use.
    Hope this answers your question Beetle Man.

    Re: A high quality bamboo rod

    Agates look nicer but carbides are more durable. It's up to the individual as to which is better. All of my personal rods have Mildrums or Perfections for the stripper but most of the ones I've made for other people have agates.

    Mr. Klett and Mr. Frost:

    Your responses are appreciated.

    I apologize for the distasteful posts you've endured in this thread...

    It is due to a fellow named MacFRAUD.

    His crude posts to this thread are the least of his misdeeds.

    Your posts, however, are appreciated.

    And I thank you.

    Sincerely,
    Golden Beetle
