old Daiwa 3 piece rock & surf rod
« on: February 27, 2017, 12:46:08 pm »
just brought my old (30 years +) beach caster back from Richards garage, I want to get it revamped who is the best person to talk to?
when I die, may my wife not sell my fishing tackle for what I told her I paid for it... and I have bought more, a severe case of TA

Glass rods are still very useful.

ah ha Brandon   :nail: 


you see where I am coming from, the 4 eyes are original so what could we do? New eyes, reel seat and butt 'binding' respray open to suggestions


all of the whipping is original, the china eyes are museum pieces,


As I said it is 30+ years old and I intend to use it a couple of times a year, I have also a vintage shakespear 2450 coffee grinder that has been serviced and I want to use with it STL

Hi Brandon


any chance you can make the social on the 27th?


I have another challenging rod, it is an 8ft 2 piece solid glass that was made for me by my Uncle over 50 years ago, I would like it revamping as a boat rod if it can  :dunno:
