I had a guide crack in my 10' lamiglas surf and jetty conventional rod.

I was wondering if there is anyone to whom I can send my rod and have it repaired?

Thanks,
Maruthu

Hi Maruthu, you can try it yourself as it is very easy and fun to do! Watch a few youtube videos and you are ready to go. I reparied my broken guide with components purchased locally. Araldite is the commercial name of the epoxy, which is availabel in any hardware store. For the thread I just got a good polyster sewing thread. The repaired guide is doing well against the aggressive GT's. Here are the photos.



Regards,
H.Venkatesan

It's a quick and easy repair. I always carry spare guides, proper whipping thread and some varnish for on the go repairs of rods while I'm travelling.

Well personally, I feel it is not as easy as it looks. I changed the guides of one of my rods but found it very difficult to get a perfect alignment. I wish there was some place which could have changed the guides professionally. Also good guides are not available here (atleast in Mumbai). I do have a sizing chart which can help understand the required size so you can order the guides online.

My work on guides:

Thanks everyone for the info.

I shall buy the equipment first and then try to fix the guide myself.

Thanks again, Maruthu

My Ugly Stik Light is due for a guide change. I had received the "Fuji" guides and thread from Cabelas. This thread proves it can be done if you are not lazy!
