    I'm not aware of any, maybe others are. The best advice is replace the guide. That guide is, in my opinion, one of the two most important on a spinning reel, the other being the tip. It needs to be smooth to not cause too much friction on the line and not to cause abrasion as line feeds out and back on. I'm aware of the problems you've posted about your hands, maybe a friend can help replace it. A temporary fix can be made with a new guide and rod tape, though I don't know how long the tape lasts.

    I got a free catalog in the mail from barlows tackle dot com just by going to their website and asking for one. Its got a lot of good stuff, including guides. They are measured in mm and prices start from .11 up to $20. Hope this helps!
