<title>Tonkin culms</title>

In 2015, Peer and David visited the Cai family in China, who have supplied rod makers for more than 20 years with Tonkin. We were shown how to select the best culms and collected samples for scientific investigations. Together with Goran Schmidt, Zentrum Holzwissenschaft (centre of wood science) of the University Hamburg we investigated the mechanical properties of Tonkin, which allowed us to scrutinise the quality of the culms and we found that the product was excellent and both butt and mid cut had advantages for rod making.

We believe that the scientific investigations that we have conducted mean that you will be buying a product of consistently high quality that is unrivalled in Europe.

David (Anglers' Bamboo Company) and Peer (Springforelle) import this Tonkin which is of the best quality for use by rod makers. The quality of the culms is ensured by the Anglers' Bamboo Company, which hand selects every culm in the warehouse of the Cai family, and this is followed by a second quality check by Springforelle in Berlin.

The culms are shipped from China via Hamburg to Berlin. From there they can be delivered to any location in Europe. If you are interested please contact Peer +49 174 787 05 86 or
