Very old shakespeare flavia 13ft match rod, a rod ring on the butt (not the butt ring, next one up) has fractured. I have looked at Ebay, but haven't seen anything bar for sea rods. Anyone know a good source of replacements for course fishing? TIA

I’ve used these several times for rod building components when I’ve been repairing or renovating a rod.

Thanks, I decided after taking it to a local tackle shop and getting quoted £15 (absolute quote) by time I had purchased materials etc it probably was just as easy to let them do it for the price.

GuidesNBlanks are expensive
Look on Ebay for bargains on as new quality guides - or get creative
I have a superb set of long distance bass rod guides if anyone is interested. They are very cool looking and unusual and would suit a carp rod perfectly
