  1. AL has good info on the wrap , I know it makes me better when I do wrap , good insurance I think
  2. Just a question ???? have you posted on the FOR SALE FORUM HERE on this FORUM ? I DID NOT CHECK,
  3. Look very close to the grip an reel seat, it might be TOAST if so, do a R & R on the reel seat an grip all at one time, a great way to learn , lots of forums out there , I feel there are lots of rod builders will shear with you do a search on the web , look around your neck of the woods to find a builder near you to help over the tough spots , just ask on the different forum's you will be sup-prized at all the help you can get
  4. It is always a good habit ti run a flame over the thread wrap before you put your epoxy on your wraps first I think , that is what I do at least ,
  5. section's #! , #2 , #3 , can be accomplished , #3 is the hardest , the butt section for get it , as I see it , also the weight of the fly rod will effect the results , [ 2 WT / 9 WT ] as well as the the stiffness of travel rod , [ line rating , stiffness ]
  6. most of the ferrules are hand fitted if one is missing go for the total replacement , it will be a lot easier do a look for bamboo blanks they will have what you want an they will talk to you also , also try Bamboo fly rod building just looked, the cost of a cheep ferrule set will cost about $4.00 , an good set about $40.00 plus postage
  7. are your old ferrules loose on the rod or loose in side of each other , they can be fixed tighten up do a search on some web site that works with Bamboo fly rods , or some place that sells the make- ens for bamboo fly rods
  8. You forgot the building to hold it all , an "' up keep "" on it , what is needed is not the small room in the basement , plus you will have to turn a lot of blanks to make the payments on the equipment , [sell the blanks ? ]
  9. try a different forum , an do it your self , to costly to pay some one to do it , I think , could be wrong ,
  10. Silverado Has some good points . most of the supply places have sales around all special day's through out the year
  11. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
  12. TRY 1-360-225-2211 I have had better luck at that number
  13. It might be , but as I see it it should be a second grade not a first grade . people with more experience than I should chime in on this , if I went to a store to buy a blank or a finished rod , it would still be there as I would never buy it
  14. The cost is higher . the main reason is labor when the blank is made, I think, also if you use the spline to set your guides up it is really hard to find to find it on the larger sections of the rod , I think .
  15. Like you not sure . but it would not be brass as brass is to soft for the large guides as you have there
