    Had my 12 year old Ecat rods rewrapped with Stainless Steel eyes, and added some color to the wraps. Im pretty happy with how they turn out. This is a cell phone pic so its not that good.

    Matt the ECats are a great rod and your looks new. They will give you many more years of great service.

    Thats what was so shocking when i went to pick them up. Those poles looked heavily used, had shad scales all over them. And the guy that did them has them looking like they are brand new rods. It was 35 bucks for each pole. 105 for everything. I paid about 110 bucks each for them back in 97 when they were new, I have never found a rod i like as much as the ecat. Im lucky to have 3 of them, cause the remakes are not the same.

    They are lookin good, hope they last a long time, its good to be able to keep and repair a good rod that you are familiar with.
