    One of my older rods needs new guides.
    Is there an on line site where I can check out the different kinds.
    The ones on it are imho kinda cheap. One is broken and the tip is grooved from lotsa use.
    Its a heavy rod so the guides need to be beafy.
    I'll be doing the replacement myself.
    Have a good one

    Bob,
    Check out Jann's Netcraft or Mud Hole Tackle. Both have plenty of good quality components...W

    If you can I would only stainless steel guides and tip therefore you can use braid if you want
