Rod Repair

Recommended Posts

Basically I have a guide on my rod that the insert popped out of. I need a new guide put on. How long would this take someone to do? If you are in the champaign,il area and can do it within a week message me. If someone could chime in on how long it would take that would be great as well.

The process of breaking down a guide and re-wrapping it should only take 15-20 minutes depending on trim bands.

 

You have to consider that he/she may not have the matching guide in stock and if you would accept a similar guide to speed things up or wait for the perfect match to be ordered.

 

The finishing(epoxying) of the guide can be up to a 48 hour process depending on what manufacturer's glue the repairer uses and whether he likes to single coat or double coat and his definition of tack-free and ready to fish.

I have a replacement guide. So basically 72hours and it should be good.

Three days should be sufficient if the guy's schedule permits.  This time of year and just before the season begins are busy periods for rod repair. You may entice a repair guy to bump up your project, but repeat customers normally get that type of treatment.

There are some quick set finishes coming on the market that can speed up turn-around on repairs but over night should be good for the most part.

I agree 100%

24hrs should be good, with even the slowest curing finishes (ie Flex Coat Standard)  ... :Victory:
