Title: Rod upgrade
Post by: deonf1984 on July 20, 2016, 03:40:48 PM
Hi guys
I have a 10ft okuma raw spinning rod  that i would like to upgrade a little.
I would like to replace the guides with either fuji or kr concept guides .
The winch nut is stripped  so the winch needs replacing . The grips are all sponge so would like to either cover it with heat shrink wrap and would like to fit a butt knob stopper  like on the assassin's.
Is there anyone that could help me with this ?

Send fishatic a message. He's the one who knows the ins and outs... he's in JHB though.
