I have a musky rod, 4 of the last guides before the top are missing the insert. Was still using it because i have to but now that 4 are missing its shredding my line.

it’s not an expensive rod and I don’t have a receipt. Is it trash?

except for the guides the rod is in great shape.

It's not necessarily trash.The question would be is it worth it to have it repaired ? With four guides being broken it might be better to just re wrap the whole rod.

depending on the guide cost , its generally costs $15. to $20. a guide to remove old and install new ( plus the cost of the guides..)
depends om how expensive the rod is you just need to decide to repair or replace it ..even chage all the guides hope that helps

Appreciate the replies, I called and they said with no receipt it would be $50 and I have to cut the rod and send in the portion with the model # on it.

I think it was a $100 rod new.

I got rid of my wrapper years ago.

if I still had it, It would only cost me $20 and be worth it.

Where did you buy the rod? My local tackle shop has all my purchases on file and can print or email the copy. But 50$ no questions asked for a replacement rod, say you bought used, is awesome. It says Okuma stands by their rods.

kinda looks like the wrap is Black on Black. a repair would be cheap enough for YOU to try your hand at wrapping! blk/blk is the EASIEST colors to spin, and the smaller guides are very affordable.

its a win/win situation. if you mess up, it's a cheap rod, if you fix it, YOU'D be a hero!

... i know you can do it.

Repairing guides is pretty straightforward with a cardboard box with a 'v' cut out of each end to hold the rod, and a couple of telephone books to tension the thread.

A small vial(s) of FlexCoat and you're good to go. If the rod is an old friend, I'd say it's well worth it
