..popped-out guide ring..

Rate this topic

2 posts in this topic

..al, a friend of mine has one of those rods with the gold-colored metal (titanium plated?) guide ring insert, i'd guess it's about a 40 or 50 mm guide, and the gold ring came out of the guide frame.

 

..is there a way to pop that thing back in there without using any special tools?..right now he has the ring in a freezer trying to cool it down to shrink it a little, but it's been in there for several months now biggrin.gif and i think he's given-up on trying to fix it.

 

..whatever you write, i'll pass along to him next month when i see him in assateague.

 

..thanks for your help.

Without knowing the specific make of guide it is difficult to answer your question.

 

Ceramic rings are typically press-fit in by the manufacturer. I would not try to reset the ring into the guide since it will probably pop out again. I would recommend having the guide replaced. If the rod is a factory production rod then I would send it back to the manufacturer.

 

Good luck.
