« on: Aug 16, 2023, 05:38 AM »
many years  ago i  found  a  daiwa fishing  rod at a yard sale ,it looked like a lamiglass so i grabbed it ,i have  used it  in the salt over the years   and  it's showing  some wear and  tear  ...... i really like the  rod   and it  is  made in the usa  ,my  question is  .....where would i get  orginal looking eyes  and  thread? i haven't  tied a rod in years  but i would like to restore this one

Mudhole and GetBit are the two places I order rod building supplies from the most. While they may not have original looking guides for an older rod, itís also a great opportunity to refresh the rod with a new guide train that uses current philosophy like the New Guide Concept (NGC) or the Fuji KR Concept depending on what the rod will be used for.

Trap. There are a few of us here that actually build rods if you run into any snags.  It is a fun project and who knows, you might just get a new hobby.  Everyone of my panfish rods have been built by me along with another dozen I made for friends.  Enjoy!
