    ---------- Post added at 07:12 PM ---------- Previous post was at 07:10 PM ----------

    This post was about agate v. tungsten guides.

    MacFRAUD is hijacking the thread, and he must be stopped.

    PETE, WHERE ARE YOU WHILE MACFRAUD IS BUSY MARAUDING?
    I was Offline.... we old pharts need our sleep.

    Since the original poster was the first to get abusive, I'm not going to try to sort out which posts belong.... You hijacked your own topic.....

    I was tempted to move the entire thread to an "open discussion" section, but Ronbo's and Jklett's posts were worth preserving.

    I'm leaving it alone .... for now.

    Re: A high quality bamboo rod

    Thanks for that info Ronbo. IMO if a bamboo rod doesnt have the agate stripping guide its not a quality rod. Like you said, its about the beauty (and nostalgia) more then functionality. Seeing as you said agate was the first real good solution for guides, i guess they are a good classic thing to put on a modern bamboo to keep it period specific.

    So silk lines are a must? And a period reel?

    Thanks for the good laugh....

    IMO thats like me saying if a bamboo rod doesnt have a UL NS reelseat with the words "Goodwin Granger" Or "Wright Mcgill" stamped into the reel seat it's not a quality bamboo rod...

    Re: A high quality bamboo rod

    I only said it was my opinion. That how i would like a bamboo rod if i was to own one. I think i simple reel is needed to compliment the 'boo. Like a Medalist or Featherweight. Just nothing overly fancy. To each their own, no need to knock someones perception of how a bamboo should be built.

    I do the same thing with my personal rods.. Mildrums or perfections the only route I'll go for a boo that's a fishing rod...
    IMO agate is only for the rods that will stay in their tube and be fished a handful of times a year....
    I seen agates with hairline cracks in them too many times to take a chance with them myself...

    The funniest post by MacFRAUD ever (now I wonder who wrote it for this Brainless Fuck).

    Not only is he a crook, now in his dreams he is Michael MacJackson living in Never Never Land....

    Next time MacFRAUD start off your post with, "Once upon a time..."

    Hey, Michael MacJACKSON.... I think you both had something in common come to think of it.
