Hello everyone.

I need some advice on the best way to repair the following damages on the line guides.

The damage on the guide insert in the picture below looks little but I fear chipping from here will begin and increase. I was thinking of filling it with either MSeal or Araldite.

The guide frame is rusted and broken at two places. The insert ring is just loosely hanging but is intact. Can it be soldered, welded or replaced?

Would really appreciate your valuable suggestions.

Sanjay,

Replacement guides (by Fuji and others) are readily sold in tackle stores
overseas and do not cost too much.

You will need to know how to change a guide on the rod or get someone competent to do it for you.

I think that if you try to fix the existing guides yourself, these will give
way at a crucial moment and cost you that fish of a lifetime!!

Hi Sanjay,

Its really easy there is nothing that we need to invent to change the guide as i have changed for my rods.. what i do is that i Buy the enitre set from fishing tackle stores or if anyone has a guide of a broken rod . i am sure many will have as i have 2-3 broken rods . U can take some tips by looking at some videos in youtube. i am sure it will help you to work it out.

u need
Guide that you need
Nylon thread
Glue stick
Eppoxy or araldite .
Some time to patience to do some reviews on youtube .

And Bingo your fishing rod will be ready ..

Good luck buddy..

Cheers

Shakespeare rods are meant to be indestructible. Don't prove them wrong.

Thank you very much for the suggetions.

I will check out the videos. Mr. Samsondhi, I will give you the size of the guides and will be obliged if you could get me the new set.

In Mumbai, I did not find the guides. The guides for telescopic rod are available but did not find the guides for 2 piece rod. Also since the rod in the second picture is not very expensive (Rs. 1350/-), was looking for cheaper repair options. But if the rod gets upgraded with better guides, I wouldn't mind spending.

The rod in the first picture is a brand new rod (used once) and I am not very sure whether the slight chipping of the insert was the way I got it or happened during the first use. Everything else is perfect in that rod. I just fear that the chipping will increase as the material is brittle (think it is ceramic). Is there an alternative to replacing the guide in this case?

Once again, Thanks for your time and valuable suggestions.

Hi Sanju,
Those guide inners are Porcelein. You certainly can use Mseal or araldite as long as it does not come in contact with your line. If you think it will, then it is wiser to change the guide.


@ Bobby You like the sound of cannibalising?????????????

Thanks Ravi.

Mr. Samsondhi, the rod tip size is either 9 or 10. Not able to surely judge as both sizes have very little difference. The rod id 9' Berkley Cherrywood 2 piece spinning rod. (CWGS902MH).

As the topic of changing guides has come
i would like to ask how can i change Stainless steel guides!!!
earlier i was using this rod with 20lb line and it was working perfectly
then i reduced my line capacity to 6lb line and the line cut the steel guide.....
i want to replace the tip.....
also
i want to know are there special requirement of rod and guide for less capacity lines as they tend to easily cut through the guides.....

Hi I could get you a tip top replacement only. If its broken, send it to me and i will get its closest size. All you need to do it sharpen the edge of the tip section, push it about 1/8th of an inch or more with areldite into the new tip top and you are in business the next day.

If interested, let me know, i will PM my address to you.

Cheers

Sorry everyone, for the delayed response.

Rod 1 repaired. Put some M Seal carefully on the gap and it good now.

Mr. Sam I greatly appreciate your help. I was looking to replace the entire set of guides on the Rod 2. I did find guides somewhere in Mumbai but they were too big, lower quality and very high in rate. (costing almost equal to the rod in question). So I am giving this rod a break. I will try to get the new guide set from one of my friends when he comes from US. Meanwhile I have other rods to fish.

Thanks once again everyone.
