Broken rod guide

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I snapped off the second to top guide on my Dobyns champion 765CB glass. I do believe that the rod is usable but I am curious if that could be for the long run. I can most likely have it fixed but I was just curious if this was necessary. Thanks

If only the guide was damaged it is easily fixed with a replacement.  Not replacing it will compromise the ability of the blank to take stress and most likely will negatively affect the feel and casting ability.  If the rod didn't need that guide, it wouldn't have been there in the first place.  They would have eliminated it and respaced the other guides.
