Replacing the top guide of a rod
« on: January 05, 2016, 02:22:40 PM »

I know many folks that think this is a difficult procedure but it's really easy and Get Bit Outdoors has a great video to show how simple it is. You wife probably has hot glue around the house, that and a guide and your set...

Thanks for the video Mike. I have a Denali Kovert cranking rod that I broke in a sliding glass door over a year ago. Ill see what I can do with it.

This works great for rods that the tip snapped off. It will obviously be an inch shorter but you can get the proper sized guide from Get Bit Outdoors and you'll be back in business  ~c~

Yea, it broke right at the next guide down, which isn't far as this rods got like 14 guides. I had just sanded the rod down flush to the next guide and been fishing with it as my tip. worked pretty good actually lol.

Good idea ~c~

Because of the torque on a tip guide that guide will pull off eventually. When you're ready you can use a razor blade and shave the threads off and remove that guide and then install the tip top :-*

Thank you for posting this Mike! Knowing how to do a quick Tip Top and Guide Repair can get you back in action in no time. A stick of tip top glue http://www.getbitoutdoors.com/supplies-rod-decor/flex-coat/epoxy/bulk-tip-top-adhesive-10-stick.html and a spool of thread is all it takes.
