could i take my current surf rod and have the guides replaced to make it a conventional caster?

also i broke out one of the ceramic rings on a guide, does the whole guide need replacing or can i just get the ring? is there a temp fix for this until i put it in the shop?

 

thanks

As to question 1, absolutely. In fact, there's no real reason (short of the weird looks you might get) why you couldn't just put a conventional reel on it right now.

 

As to 2, you could try super-gluing the ring back into place, but a better temporary fix until the season's over would be to buy a repacement guide of the same size, carefully cut thru the epoxy and threads to remove the broken guide, and tightly tape the new guide in place with black electrical tape. I've seen some old timers out there whose rods have more guides taped on than wound on.
