    Default Replacment tip ring

    Anyone point me in the direction where I could have a tip ring replaced on a hardy Marksman spinning rod, don't fancy attempting it myself.

    Cheers

    so easy matt , buy the ring and some heat glue [its only pennies] heat the old eye up with a lighter and pull it of with pliers heat your glue up smear on the end of the rod and slide the new eye over , leave to cool and thats it all done

    It looks like its whipped on, Ive done the heatglue on other rods in the past but this looks different. Unleess the have just whipped up close for cosmetic affect.

    Then Hardy are at it big time. Should cost no more than about £6.00 plus the guide cost if a new one needed. I do dozens each year probably less than 15-20 minutes if some new thread needed, ( excluding varnish time in the dryers.)

    Fully rebuilt a Hardy Marksman a few weeks back, it was a double leg tip guide which does require to be wrapped on with thread. If doing it your self (not difficult) cut the hot melt into small slivers and put them in the tube of the tip. Just putting on the rod, most of it rubs off. Heat the tube up, position and aligne. Cools in less than a minute then the thread work.

    As said really easy. The whipping is just cosmetics. I shave a little glue stick so piece will fit inside the new ring. Then heat the ring while holding in forceps then slide over rod tip and in secs it cools and job done.
