That's what I figured. I very much want to use it as both. I never have a nice anything I'm not willing to use at least from time to time. Was still hoping someone may have come across a problem like this and knew something I didn't. I still have the weekend and am open to suggestions. Thank you for your time and input

I have a reel problem. Lol. I have a really nice Garcia Mitchell 488 that I had bought off @#$%& and the base of the case where the reel mounts to the rod was broken when I received it. I have scheduled for a return but really would rather keep the reel if anyone knows of any way to repair or fix it without it looking bad. I don't think it's repairable but the reel has been completely restored an

Does anyone know if you can remove the plastic anti-reverse switch on a García Mitchell 302? I'm trying to strip and repaint the reel and have run into a bit of a barricade...

I'm going to try a set of the Pacific Bays and a Microwave with the Air Vortex. I think they will function well and look good with my early projects and are still alot cheaper than some I've looked at with mixed reviews. Thank you for the advice.

I appreciate it. I haven't really had an opportunity to look at the library much as I've been very busy at work but I will take a look and probably go ahead and order a set or two from your suggestions and I have one in particular I want to throw lures with I was thinking about putting the microwave on if you think they would work well for that. I've kinda gotten alittle anxious and ready to se

Also I have seen the Microwave carp and surf guides and was hoping to get some feed back on that. I didn't know if that could be a possible solution to my problem. Not sure I'm convinced they would look quite right with the rod set-ups I am working on but I have never seen them in person. Again, thank you.

I am very new to this and have redone several different rods and am ready to add some rod guides but I need to try and keep my costs down as I'm still kind of in a trial stage at the rebuilding process and have already invested quite a bit at this point. Most of my rods are from about 6' 8" to 12'. Most of the guides I have taken off have been larger 2 foot older chrome guides but are in ver

I haven't decided yet about the top of the rod, just leaving work. What would be an easy to use thread protectant and epoxy for me to use? Any I may be able to go to a local store and buy?

I left the upperside of the rod unwrapped so I would have more options for clear coat. I would really like to put a good protective clear coat on it since my painted fade is sprayed on rather thin. After that I figured I could move on to the guides and so on... I don't want to lose much of the action of the rod but I was kinda hoping maybe I could do the lower side of the rod alittle different

I have a graphite rod that I sanded and painted lightly with a paint and primer mixed spray paint with a multicolored fade and have wrapped the butt end and have not done anything else to. This is my very first rod and I don't know what kind of clear coats, color protectants or anything to use. I would be VERY APPRECIATIVE of some experienced help!! I used poly thread and I believe the spray p
