It is that time of year to tune up the equipment to get ready for some spring fishing. I just happened to scan the rod tip of one of my favorite rods and it was deeply grooved along the bottom center of the tip guide. It has to be from the superline. The groove in the rod tip was deep and sharp and definitely could hurt the line. I immediately checked all my other rod tips and they all looked OK. Next time you all get a chance, check out your rod tip guides looking for a groove along the bottom edge. I tried to take a photo of it but it didn't turn out very good but you get the idea.
