This is the First Bamboo rod that I owned.

CY Kuan and I got it from Tenku few years ago.

Since then there's no looking back and CY had gone on to acquire a whole collection of bamboo rods from many reknown bamboo rod makers.

Me, I managed to re-built 2 bamboo rods on my own using an old 3 section rods I got from eBay. Then poisoned Uncle Wong that he is now making rods on his own.

The rest is what they say - History, when the LeoRod was created.I have caught many fishes with this McDowell, and it was my favourite rod.

It still is one of my favourite rods and I still use it more often than the other rods.
