This was a makeover on a friends fishing rod that had seen better days, maybe back to the 60’s. Its a ole Bullet Proof Fiberglass Rod, with I think a brass chromed reel seat. But I have to say, the stainless eyes that were on it were in almost prestine shape… Guess they dont make’m like they use to on these. I didnt want to change up his rod since he liked it like it was yrs past, so I didnt add any more eyes, and rewrapped them in the place where they came off. I Watched several YouTubes and was able to re vitalize the EVA type foam.
Some one had hand wrapped and tied the eyes on it in years back. They eyes were caked on with Superglue… that was a chore to get off, but gott’r done. I Cleaned up real good the worn Butt from im sure years of hours of being put in rod holders, stuck in holes, standing in the corner of hot garages etc for years n years. The flat scouring pads, majic erasers, pine-o-pine, soap and water and elbow grease got it cleaned up. Was sort of a fun thing to do and learn from for my good friend Bobby.
