    Opinions on choice of guides...is there any reason to use anything other than Fuji?

    Fuji guides are fine when you can get them consistantly (which is never) I'll stick with Alps, just as good quality, less expensive, always easy to get, no bullshit warranty and great company to deal with, and they are expanding their options as oppose to Fuji constantly discontinuing popular...

    Removing a slick butt from rod

    I would just cover it with no flock shrink or X wrap like Gary suggested, you can get the slick butt off pretty easily but putting hypolon on from the ass end is a pain in the ass

    New Rail Dawg policy

    yes mine are trademarked but that dosent stop them from making cheap imitations that dont say Rail Dawg on them. Problem is, it's no secret what I make them out of, thats easy, but it took me 3 years to develop the method to inject the core material into the outer hose, and every method used...

    New Rail Dawg policy

    Due to a fishing rod company stealing my design and "trying" to knock off my Rail Dawg fore grips, and to a couple of hack builders that have put my grips on shoddy looking rods and tried to sell them on ebay as Saltydawg built rods, I will no longer sell Rail Dawgs to other builders, no...

    How to line up gimbals best..?

    push a wooden pencil into the vertical slot of the gimble then sight down the rod like a gun sight and line up with the guide train with the pencil adjust and then carefully set the rod down until the glue sets, I use 5 min epoxy so it sets quickly

    Photo wraps fading!

    I dont have to use a fixative with the Alps, it's a thermal printer, totally different ink than ink jet

    Thats why I use my Alps printer for photo wraps, the ink in inkjet printers is not designed for exterior use

    Shrink Tube Question...

    On the rear grip I install the shrink after and then butt the seat up against it, on th fore grip I partially shrink it on the back end so I can tuck the end and butt it against the front of the seat, then I'll shrink it down all the way, trim the front and install the hosel to tuck the front...

    Question about factory finish on blank?

    You havent ruined it, after the cello is removed most blank MFGs run the blanks through the sanders and remove the ribs, and then most put finish on them, CPXtra or perma gloss would be what you want to put on them

    Options for fixing a loose foregrip

    The injection method has worked for me, go down to your local bass fishing shop and buy a worm blower, they have a stout needle with large diameter hole, put some 5 or 20 minute epoxy in the plastic bulb and inject it under the hypolon

    Quality Hypalon

    Squidco, Seeker and Calstar all have the spongy stuff now because thats what Calstar has and Seeker gets theirs from Calstar and Squidco gets theirs from Seeker, Acidrod probably get it from Calstar as well. Bottom line, whatever Calstar has is what most are stuck with, however, I have found...

    Tip top attachment

    The reason I dont like using epoxy, even 5 min is you have too much time while it sets for the tip to rotate off center, who has time to hold it on center till the glue sets

    Why lose the seat? cut the blank at the front of the reel seat and send the front half of the blank (after you pull off the guides) to phenix, they are probably only interested in seeing the part that failed, and drill out the blank and arbor material and save the seat, if they want to see the...
