Headwaters Bamboo Rod Company, located in Hillsboro, OR, has launched a new line of bamboo fishing rods through a crowdfunding platform called Peerbackers.com. Peerbackers is an online resource for small businesses to raise capital in small amounts from their peers. In order to generate capital Headwaters Bamboo Rod Company is providing tangible rewards for those willing to participate. In this case it is an early edition of a casting rod at a significant discount. It is a win/win situation for both the company and the participants.
This timely infusion of cash has allowed the Headwater Bamboo Company to forge ahead with manufacturing resources and marketing. The hand split and planed bamboo created for the conventional fisherman is made from Tonkin Cane, one of the strongest types of bamboo, and is shipped from southeast China. Clearly a remarkable success when access to capital is in such short supply due to the current banking climate.
Funding on Peerbackers.com allows us to move forward with introducing new products
Spokesman for Headwater Bamboo Rod Company
Headwaters Bamboo Rod Company has been in business for ten years, and is known for its bamboo rods that can be purchased at more affordable prices. Fly Fishing enthusiasts prefer bamboo rods to synthetic rods as it is more authentic.
On the day that Jascha Heifitz plays a plastic violin in the New York Philharmonic I would consider using a rod made of synthetic materials.
