Rod building Newb Question

Recommended Posts

 I was looking at the Mojo 6'10" glass rod, that way I could go from a 6'6" and 7' to just 1 rod. I also have a broken Premier rod. Now I hate split grips, how hard would it be to replace the Mojo's handle with the Premier ?

That wouldn't really be viable, but it would be easy enough to fit a different rear grip if you wanted to, with a new grip from a rod building supply shop. Might be simpler to wrap the entire handle area with winn grip tape though to make it seem like a full rear handle.

If you're asking about taking a handle off one rod and putting it onto another, I think it is impractical.  I don't know how to remove a handle (grip?) in one piece so it could be put onto another rod. If you try I think you'll have two "broken" rods.  Pick a new rod that meets your expectations.

Yes I wanted to take the grip off one rod to put on another, and I currently have 1 6'6" St Croix Premier glass for accuracy and 1 7' Team Daiwa S glass rod for distance, was looking to scale back and have 1 rod to do it all. St Croix no longer sells blanks I believe so was looking to go a different way, maybe I should just stick to what I got.

I believe the Rod Geek S glass blanks are the same blanks as St. Croix sold, just made in Mexico now. MHX also makes S glass blanks.
