BPL Hane with Iwana labeling.

happy good day to all,

i have a BPL Hane with 11' Iwana labeling. the rod, which has 10 section from handle to tip, is in great shape except that I am missing section #7. i'm posting here in the hope of one of three things happening:

a) someone has an extra section #7 for this rod they'd like to sell.
b) someone would like to buy the parts i have (including the brand new tipset).
or,
c) someone would like to talk about a trade of some sort.

thanks and have a good one,

-mike

PM Sent. I am interested in your BPL Hane rod if it's still available. Thank you.

I would have expected T USA to have the spare piece. No?

JD, since the Hane was a special run for one vendor a very long time ago, we only have tipsets for this rod. Tj

Ah I see. It was a long shot, because I know that BPL only had them for about a year maybe a year and a half. It definitely is the rarest of all the TenkaraUSA rods. That's one rod we just don't see up for resale often. It seems that those who have 'em aren't letting them go. I can only remember one in the last 3 years up for sale.

I do know where you can get 9 spare pieces though. haha!

Something I haven't done but surely will do with rod parts when no replacements are available is make a Frankenstein rod. Just to resurrect broken rods. There's examples of this in the Japanese pages. One way or another parts could be added that fit with glue or cutting, even perfectly sized. Could accidentally make a great fishing rod.

I too have a "Frankenrod". This rod has the original lower 4 sections but the upper 3 sections are replacement sections from a different rod and different company. They fit perfectly and make a really nice rod.

I don't know it that could be done with damonmichaels BPL Hane though.

thanks for the replies y'all. the "frankenrod" approach has always been in the back of my mind and your posts have inspired me to try. i was fortunate to come into a number of older models (even a kawa 11'/12'/13'), half of which are in one state of disrepair or another. i just want to do it right if ya know what i mean.
