Fits really good not sure what you mean, the original I am thinking that is why it broke in that area. It was only in 1.25 inch's. It broke around there, I have three Hm blanks, they all were 2.5 inch.

I have a few NFC Hm blanks, I broke one and I want to use the midsection of the other blanks I have. What should be the ferrule measurements. I measured with the new one it seems to go a quarter inch more than the broken one. Is that ok. Cause it's a mid section I have to account for tip and butt. I have 2 3/4 for the butt and 2 1/4 for the tip. That's the amount that goes in. Thanks in Advance

I use the u-40 cp I like it alot, I use to use the gudebrod orginal formula, stuff was the best Imo. Not sure why they changed the formula, I use cp for my normal nylon. I find it has to be less than a year old or it leaves alot of blotches. People had told me it's from the threads not being pack tight enough but it wasn't the case for me. I put three thin coats works great and haven't had it giv

I didn't purchase this guide I got a few off some friend that got them from a Rapala Concept Ti. I usually wrap float fishing rods, not a newbie. Just trying to see if anyone has any good transition ideas. I am building a bass rod for the first time, 90% I use guide tops on float rods

I agree with bill I do the decal on its own. I do lengthwise strokes. I do the 180 on the decal for 15 mins just to make sure there's no heavier spots. Then I put it on a 9 rpm dryer.
