    Welcome to the BOC Jeff!:0a25:.The majority of your decent rods now have eyes that will hold up to braid without no problems.Still a lot of older and cheaper rods that will get grooves in the eyes from braid though.Be careful.:wink:.

    Welcome to the BOC Jeff ... If you are using braid and you are seeing wear or damage and have the know how you can put stainless eyes on your rods and the problem will be solved....

    Welcome to the BOC! Yes it will wear on the eyes of some poles. I haven't had any problems with it though.
