Progress on my new 50-cm, four-piece tanago rods. After a long day today managed to fit all three insert pieces of one of the rods. The wrapping and filing process can warp the bamboo slightly so after the other rod is fitted I will fire them both again and then they are ready for lacquering.
The rod held in my hand, to give some idea of its size. The tip and the rod section that holds it have clearly warped a bit.
