Those components certainly look like they will turn into some really beautiful rods! Congratulations and best wishes on starting your new rod company. BTW, that stacked bamboo reel seat is just gorgeous. Duff

Very nice. The ferrules and fiberglass rod tube are striking. Will we be able to cast one or two models at the Catskill gathering?

Beautiful looking rods, for us weak in language skills, is there a method to translate his web site into English?  I believe some of these rods will be in the gathering at the Catskills? Hopefully Matt will road test them for those unable to attend.

The only part I saw that isn't in English is the "about us" section. That can be translated by http://www.google.com/web ... ce=mp_trha&ct=1056755011 or other online utilities. All the parts about models, prices, and ordering are in English already, at least the sections that are complete.

Thank you very much for the kind words.
I will send demo rods to Fred with display rod, so that everyone may test them at Northeast Glass Clave.
There are a lot of things that should be talk about rod action and blank manufacturing. You might imagine light action rod about Japanese rods.
But Kabuto Rods has correct stiffness in the butt section.
I'm sorry to not good at English. Thank you CC your helping.
I will offer some finished rods next week.
Thanks,
Kab

No problem, Kab. Your English is far better than my Japanese! I really look forward to your finished rods, although I won't be able to attend the Clave. I guess I'll have to choose one and buy it.

Kab,
What an attractive package! - blank, components, and tube. Would you comment on your tapers and their capabilities?

So much to appreciate about your rods, Kab! The stacked bamboo reel seat is so innovative and beautiful, and I love how the guide wraps complement the color in the bamboo. A rod built with this much love likely has an wonderful action to match!

I agree with all that has been said about the beauty and elegance of your rods.

I'd love to see them in action. Do you have any photos of them on a stream?
