Converting a rod ?

Rate this topic

3 posts in this topic

I expect to cop some flack over this but I love making gear from what I have lying around.


I have a 2 piece surf rod that I use rarely, set up for a spinning reel. I have now rolled it over to take a medium sized Abu bait caster. Had to replace the largest runner to suit the line feed from the Abu and all looks good.


I understand that there is an overlap of fiberglass that creates a rib during tha manufacture. I am guessing that that is lying along the top of the taper.


Have I weakened the rod and has anybody had any experience with breakages in a roll over like this ?
