    Default Old Cane Rod Refurb Required

    My old dad gave me his cane rod this week and it looks a bit run down. Where in Scotland can I get it refurbished? A complete strip down of the varnish, whippings and handle - the corks worn away with years of parking a fly there. I would like the original rings matched where a couple have been replaced and mis-matched. A full refurb.

    It's 10ft 6in and weghs in at a handsome 9oz with a really slow action of about a cast a fortnight!!

    Where can I get this done and what is it likely to cost?

    Without specific experience of them, but getting recommendationss on their rod building and looking at the before and after shots of refurbs for sale I would suggest that you look at http://www.finecanerods.com/ as a first step.

    On the basis of what they show annd illustrate on the site I would guess at 200 give or take?

    Default Old cane rod refurb

    Apologies for the late reply. Alan thank you for recommending me. Bill the average price for the work you describe is about 150 but I need to see the rod to confirm. I have completed projects for clients in Scotland so distance is not a problem.

    I can send further photos of completed work if required. Contact me direct on g.marshall50@ntlworld.com.
