Bought a used rod, but...
I recently got a 9' 8 wt winston ascent rod that was used as a demo at my local fly shop. It normally sells for about $230 but they sold it to me for $130 because it was used. It has a bunch of abrasions on the bottom of the rod near the cork, so I was wondering if there was a way to to clean the abrasions up by maybe sanding it down and refinishing it. I have no clue how I'd do it or if it's even worth it. Or maybe there is a place I can send it to to have it cleaned up a bit? I don't know. Any help is appreciated.
