The ceramic on the last guide (tip) is cracked, I'm looking for somewhere in north county. Suggestions please.
Hoping it's not a long turnaround, fingers crossed! Thanks in advance.

Super easy fix any decent tackle shop should be able to fix that while you wait. They may not have the same tip, but at the very least they can replace it with a serviceable tip.

DIY job, but for your first replacement, go to local tackle shop and watch them heat the tip, slide off old tip then re-glue new tip on. Tip replacement is super easy when you see how it's done. Usually only costs the price of the tip + a buck: $5-6.
