Bought a 11' TIGER Rod on EBAY last year for around 20.00 it looks good, can tell it's been used but still in good shape--however I was wondering if anyone had any advise where I can take the rod in to get it checked or overhauled. I live in O'fallon Illinois so if anyone can give me any advise or help I'd appreciate it. The rod can handle 15-30 lb. test I believe and it now has a Diawa Emblem X-5500 20/230lb. Spinning reel on it. It seems the eyelits on the rod or good, however once I attach the rod together it's a bugger to get apart, are two piece rods pretty hard to seperate--this one takes some umf to loosen up.
