End of Butt??

7 posts in this topic

Hey fellas

I use a automotive plug for the end of tennessee grips on my spinning rods and ice rods. Problem is there is a very big inconsistentsy in getting them. I found them at Ace hardware and everytime I get them they are different sizes. Anyone have any info on where I can get something similar and in bulk. My rod suppleir doesn't have anything close to this

GooseBilly,

Can you post a pic of it? Or even a better description, I am not sure what you talking about.

I don't have a pic at the moment. But the plug goes directly into the butt of the rod blank and is flanged on the head of the plug to cover the the reamed/drilled hole in the cork. Black plastic is the color and material of it.

Are you talking about automotive door and trim plugs? Sounds like that would work well and look clean. Try a auto part store. Its a common item.

auto trim plugs work very nicely.

When I've built rods for my kids and grandsons, I just epoxy the hole closed and epoxy on an Indian head penney that 100 years older than they are. Especially with the young ones, it minimizes the fights over who's rod is who's.

Is this what you are looking for. If so, I did a quick search on line for "auto trim plugs" and found it.
