Not sure. I'll get the cost at the post office later this week. I can stuff it all into a flat rate priority envelope, or cut a small piece and send by weight in a regular envelope. I have no idea which will be cheaper, but let me know if you have a preference.
Probably the 8 foot piece would be best the rope thats on it now is a little short and it drives me nuts. If price for shipping is way to high I could get away with short piece and that way I will know what to order. Thanks a lot and I am in no hurry wont start fishing till march anyway
I saw a video where they soaked it - I didn't do that, but it might make it easier.
I'd say it was a minor pain in the ass. Took me a few hours because I had to clean out bits and pieces of the old insert. Also wet sanded the rail. Rigid spatula to get it started, then pound with a mallet, all the way around.
