Default Hexographic fly rods

I read online where Hexographic fly rods has closed for business. The owner wanted to retire. I have one of his rods. It looks like split bamboo. But is graphite tubbing split and glued together like bamboo. Fishes much like a good quality split bamboo rod but is much more durable.

Sorry their not in business anymore. Don't know the cost of a used one on the used rod market but new when I got mine years ago they were about $700.

I have never seen one but from pictures they look just like bamboo. beautiful rods.

I have my grandfathers E.C. Powell rod that he had made in 1935. he gave me my first lesson in 1948 at Big Bay Illinois.
I sent the rod back to Powell rods in 1993 and one of ECs great grandsons refinished it. it looks like it should be in a museum.

If you like to fish for bluegills etc. you are in a paradise for a fly fisherman. not to mention, reds in the salt water.

As a update to the OP, I was able to contact the owner of Hexographic rod company and he has a very few rods left he sells until their gone. He put me on his list and will notify us when he either finds more or a used one becomes available to buy.

He sent me a notice on a like new used one just like the one I have. 9&1/2' 4-5 wt. classic for sale for $999
Looks like my rod is worth more than I paid for it new. At least someone thinks it is.
