  • Rod Repair ATL

    I have a 7.5 foot spinning rod and the second to last guide had the ceramic insert pop out. The rod itself has a lifetime warranty, but I would rather not deal with having to find an 8 foot tube and send it off. Does anyone know of a good metro atlanta rod repair person that can change out a guide? I've actually had a few other issues with the zirconium guides on this rod, so I may consider changing all of them out.

    It is a pretty easy to do. Watch a few youtube videos. It'll take 5 mins to put a new one on (assuming that the epoxy/glue releases easy on the old one and that you have lightly sanded the old epoxy/glue off). I would offer to do it, but I am a little too far away.

      I would bite the bullet and send it in for the manufacturer to handle as doing the work yourself could void the lifetime warranty. Also, you could call Cabela's or BPS and see if they have cardboard rod tubes they are planning on throwing out.
