rod repair

Recommended Posts

I have a couple of Fenwick DR 2C rigger rods   with broken tips I would like  the tips  replaced and a couple of  eylets   moved. Is there anyone  doing rod repair work  around ? That's   what   happens when you let  the guys get lazy  slapping the water  with the rod   to get rid of  fleas

An old e-glass rigger stick is very flexible. The materials I have available today for internal repairs are all higher modulus and while repairable if it’s a clean break, you probably won’t be happy with the change in the rod after it’s repaired.

If the breaks are close to the tip and you just want to shorten it at that point, you’ll need a new larger tip and to do it right you’ll probably need to relocate a guide or two.

In all honesty, it’s not worth the time and expense to have me repair it and also pay to ship to me and back unless there’s some intangible sentimental value associated with the rods that outweigh economic value.
