Default Re: The Eye on my rod is coming off.

it's a relatively easy fix if you have the materialsa and handy with small work like that and with the desire to learn something new. i can also try to put you in touch with a rod wrapper if you can't find a shop close by. where in california are you located? i'm in the central valley and might even be able to help you directly. for one guide (is it a stripper or snake guide?) you don't need a wrapping stand and could get by with just a cardboard box as a stand and dryer. if you were to do it yourseelf, it could take about... 1-2 hours, then overnight drying once you apply the thread finish.

since it probably has sentimental value, it would pay to do it right and not a quick fix like clear fingernail polish over the remaining threads.
