Eye Repair

Recommended Posts

I have a G Loomis rod and all the outside coating is gone off the last eye and it is really tough on my line is there any easy fix without sending it back to be repaired?

Change the tip, you need a tip guide, a lighter, a little piece of Hot Glue and pliers.

1.- Heat the tip

2.- Grab it with the pliers and pull it out

3.- Heat the glue until it 's pliable and make a small roll with your fingers

4.- Insert the glue roll in the new guide

5.- Hold the tip guide with the pliers and heat it until the Hot Glue melts

6.- Insert the new tip and align

7.- Soak your fingers and smooth the excess glue, while the glue is still hot ( if you don 't soak your fingers you can get a really nasty burn )

8.- Insert the tip in cold water to harden the glue.
