is it possible to replace the ceramic ring that fits in the guide? it is not the tip, but the second guide down. do i have to replace the whole guide? thanks in advance.

NO! Once a guide is broken it is broken for good no repairs just replacement....

Reel Mech is right, however the good news is that replacing a guide is generally an inexpensive repair.  Places I've seen range from $10-$15.

I just had the top and second guide replaced locally in Boynton, cost was 12.50 for both.

Like flechero stated, the good part is it isn't to expensive...

Just have to find someone locally that is good.... :)

I charge on my walk-in guide repairs a rate of $10.00 to wrap, coat, cure, plus MSRP of the guide depending on style and size.... 8-)

While the some shop prices can be cheap so can the workmanship.. :D

You have to make sure you get someone that knows the color changes that rod wrap threads go through, and can wrap a guide without gaps and dimples, plus put on a good level finish...

I personally like wrapping the replacements better than the original wraps, so the guys like to come back and have me re-wrap all the guides to look as good as the replacement..

Good Luck & Tight LInes!!!!
