Rod Blanks

5 posts in this topic

I was wondering if anyone knew where I could find the last foot of fishing rods. I'm trying to finish some ice fishing poles that I started 3 yrs ago x-mas and want to finish them. I would need about 20-30 of them. Or if someone had another idea on what I could use. I tried 1/8 in. brass but that has no feeling to it.

Was in the Bargin Cave at the Owatonna (MN) Cabelas last night. They have a 5 gal bucket chock full of rod ends - most are in the $3.00 range. There are various weights.

Make sure you look them over - found some that were broken.

Most of them are graphite.

Thanks UG. I just checked on HSOList and they had ice fishing blanks. So hopefully I'll get them. About $0.40 a piece.

Capra's in Blaine will have graphite rod blanks for a pretty cheap price once there ice fishing stuff is out (or maybe they will have them out anyway). I built a rod from the materials at Capra's, good quality.

Good Fishin, Matt.

    • When you rip up the floor, do you only need  replace the foam if it's wet? Also am I going to have to take out the consoles and windshield. I'm assuming I'll have to....Thinking of starting the project in the next month or so.
    • Not going to worry about much until later in the season, we know they can't stay crazy hot forever and slumps will happen, just as long as they are too long I will be happy. I just want them playing really well down the stretch.

    • I've said for years that he needs to wear a helmet, but it was for entirely different reasons.
    • I think that is talking about painkillers etc.      Likely he is taking stuff like statins and blood pressure meds as a minimum.  And he had some depression issues, as I recall, so perhaps something for that.     I saw a thing on TV that said it could have been a vasovagal syncope.  Basically you pass out due to stress.
