Is it the tip? If it is you can purchase a new tip a put it on yourself. If it is one of the other ones check out a place that builds rods. There used to be one in Richfield but they have closed. If you want a small fun project do it yourself. I built a rod a few years ago and putting on rod guides isn't that difficult. All you really need is a new guide, string and some poly sealant. Good luck.

It isn't the SW Metro, but Thorne Brothers up in Fridley (?) will do an excellent job. The rod repair is actually in The Fly Angler, which is the adjacent store. You can walk back and forth between the stores once inside.

pj4, Why do you figure that you need to put more guides on your ice rod? For the price of most ice rods you would be better off getting one that better meets your needs, that is unless you bought an expensive one to start with and then it stands to reason it would have been built right in the 1st place.

The biggest thing in guide numbers and spacing is to have the line basically follow the arc of the rod with no spots where there are real sharp angles in the line. Most 24 to 28 inch ice rods would work well with 3 guides and a tip top.

i have 2 rods that the second eyelet broke off and need to replace. also one rod with 2 eyes and a tip that was wondering if more would help. biggest problem is the the bobber stop catches on the tip sometimes when reeling in. i've changed the string and tighten the cr$p out of it and still does, mostly with fish on. so my thinking is add one eye behind the tip to help it bend the tip more and replace the tip with a larger opening,mabey easier for bobber stop to slide through? what do you think?

pj4,

You could try a tip with a larger diameter ring. The larger ring has a more rounded edge on the insert and might let the bobber stop pass easier.

I would do the guides for you, but I live on the range and I am sure you don't want to drive the far to have them replaced smile.gif

      great app idea never heard of commercial apps before. it seems to me that the fastest way to find developers on any exchanges, that is, you need to place your ad and then you will be offered all possible options

      It seems to me that this is excellent advice, but one option is not enough, I think. You need to look at a few and decide which one is best, it all depends entirely on the customer.

      the best option is to entrust such work to other specialists, but you will have to pay a lot of money for this, but still I think it's worth it to get a quality product that you will have to work with for a very long time, if not all your life

      Tips for Reducing the Stress of Writing High School Papers  
    • leoholmes
      High school is a pivotal time in every student's life. The challenges of this period range from the courses themselves to the social pressures that come from interacting with peers. One of the main challenges high school students face is writing papers. The reason for this is that writing is a skill that develops over time, and many high school students have never had to produce a paper before. High school students need to write papers for many different classes. These papers may be research papers or essays. These different types of papers all require different skills for help write my paper. However, high school students may struggle with all of them. This is because they aren't used to producing writing on a regular basis.

      In today's markets, there are many different liquidity provision. These providers are often financial institutions and banks, and many of them act as an intermediary between buyers and sellers. These institutions tend to send buy and sell orders at prices reflecting the current state of the market and the risk associated with an asset. Liquidity providers also serve the interests of investors by maintaining tight spreads and providing reliable market liquidity. In addition, they efficiently deploy capital to serve the needs of investors.
