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.

    • There are some pretty gnarly long roads and trails up in that area. I use to do some of them alone on 4 wheeler but not anymore. It's always nice to have a buddy with a wince along!  What are you guys thinking on doing with it hunting-camping?
    • Looks interesting. They have those nets that you put down a hole that do the same thing, but I can see where some people would prefer this more solid version.
    •   The land in question is a 40 acre parcel up near Remer. My FIL's uncle has owned it since my FIL was a small child and he has been spending time up there ever since. It's a cool parcel of land with lake frontage but it is hard to get to. The last mile or so is basically an ATV trail. When it is dry enough we can get in with trucks but the last time I was up there there were a lot of trees across the trail that would need to be cleared.    I would love to be able to own that land but ultimately it has to be an immediate family member. My FIL says he was supposed to inherit it because his dad used to be half owner as well. It is looking less and less likely that will happen because the current owner's wife is in a nursing home and the money has run out. We think there may be a lien on the property already but don't know for sure.    My FIL needs to talk to his uncle about the situation before it's too late but I think he is holding out hoping to inherit it. I hope that happens but I'm pretty sure it won't.
    • This is a good way to keep them crisp
    •   I was just wondering where it was since you said you needed a 4 wheeler to get into it. I know the woods up in that area pretty well after years of hunting, snowmobiling and Dual Sport riding all over. Not thinking of buying but just wondering where it was?
    • I'm not fighting with anyone.   Many ways to make antennas, and for receivers in cars wavelengths aren't all that important.   Class up your vehicle with a wire nut or a fox tail or whatever you like.  
    •   Still a possibility but due to family dynamics it would have to be a joint venture with my FIL. He is the one that would have to technically make the purchase and we would go halves with him but he isn't doing anything about it right now.    It may still be a possibility but I'm not holding my breath.
    • sounds like draw length is too long
    • Wax all the string except where the serving is as the wax can get under it and cause it to slip   You should be able to tell the serving because the string will be thicker. Serving is just a thin string wrapped around you bow string. Will be around your peep sight around your d loop   If all else fails just go to your local archery shop and ask them for some pointer about waxing and other general bow maintenance that you should be doing hope some of this info helps though good luck!
