    I find it hard to think when I have a boner... No poon intended 😎

    It's interesting to note how the bamboo bends during the cast and the fight, but especially on the hook set. That rod dances properly during the fight, must be great for tippet protection.

    Have you fished bamboo a lot Mario? Would you say Bamboo is better for protecting light tippets or are the modern rods equally capable?

    I fish it a fair amount, and yes, amazing tippet protectors. Glass too (which I'm fishing more and more now), and a bit less wobbly (depending on taper of the bamboo rod - there are some pretty great "modern" tapers out there - especially from Massimo Tirocchi, www.t-rods.it) . Modern rods do a great job too, but it's action dependent really (tip especially). The ESN is great imho.

    One thing is that you do have to alter the strike a little. You can (and need to be) a little more authoritative in setting the hook.
