Hello all 

 

I just acquired a Cape Fear Hexagonal blank off shore 40# class trolling rod that is beat to hell. Guides are badly oxidized and missing inserts etc 

 

I would like to find someone to rebuild the rod  entirely and put new guides on if possible in an acid wrap configuration 

 

any suggestions ?

 

 

thank you

Location would help 

Rebuilds are always more work than new builds too, gotta find someone who doesn't mind putting in the work

I’ll be the one to suggest that you do it yourself.

Rod building is easy to learn and can be accomplished with few tools.

I built my first rod at a kitchen table and wrapped it by holding it in a cardboard shoe box that I cut notches in.

I had no instructional books or YouTube videos. 
A guy I knew showed me in a 5 minute lesson how to start and finish wrapping a guide and I was off.

Seriously, do this yourself.

You’ll have fun and earn some confidence in your own abilities.

Cheers!

Have you seen these rods work with an acid wrap in the past?  Their hexagonal construction may not take well to the torsion involved, or may do fine, I’ve no idea but worth thinking about. If Billy40 still posts in the rod building forum he’d be the one to ask (and do it).

I have the same thoughts thank you for commenting sir
