    Hey Guys- thought I’d ask the rod builders this question. So, scored a lb 6480H & wondering what material to rewrap with or if I even need to. Rod is pristine. appreciate any ideas & feedback. Thx guys. Tommy
    Planning on putting Fthm 25N on it.

    Maybe if it has stainless steel guides it might be worth rewrapping to guides with inserts, but probably more work than it is worth.

    I assume it has those old 2-footed stainless rings. I hate those things, always pops in the middle of the trip. Get some basic turbos and rewrap it. I've done that with all my old seekers. Blank is still awesome.

    Looks new. Bet it has quality black braced rings they did after the Ti guides. I'd just fish it. They did some good thread work compared to the new style.

    If you rewrap, make it look original with the Ti guides they had for a while 2010ish. I have a few and they are fish killers. I fish 50lb on mine.

    Like everyone before, I'd fish it until the guides fall apart. Then if you do decide to have it rewrapped it, I can rewrap it for you.
