    Hi,
    I built my last rod about 4 years ago. You can still see some of my work here from page 8 backwards.
    Like you, I reinstated some of my old rods and rebuilt them. The first one was bad to look at but good to fish. After about 10 rods, I discovered that I enjoyed rod building and thereafter, built hundreds of rods, mostly for myself and my friends.

    If you are considering rebuilding an old rod, you must consider the following:
    1. There is a cost element in stripping an old rod and reinstating the blank. So, you must balance such cost with the price of a new blank.
    2. Consider the cost of parts and labour to rebuild the rod. If they outweigh the cost of the old blank, it may not be worthwhile, unless you some sentimental attachment to the rod.
    3. Will it be cheaper to just buy another new rod from the shelf or even customizing one.

    My recommendation is for you to take this opportunity and learn to do it yourself, like what I did long long ago.

    Cheers
