Guides of the fishing rod are very soft. They can bend down and break easily when you misuse it. You need to keep the alignment right. Here are some simple steps:
⦁ Firstly, cut the old wrapping and epoxy to remove the guide. Don’t put a razor to the rod as it can damage it.
⦁ Sand the place where you want your new guide to go so that is smooth and offers better adhesion.
⦁ Press the base of the new guide on the rod and make sure it is aligned with the other guides on the pole. Further, wrap a piece of tape to hold the guide in place and then wind thread around the guide. Keep maintaining the tension in the loop.
⦁ Apply a layer of epoxy to the guide to keep it in the right place. Now let it free for some hours.
