Disaster, I discovered that my 8'6 5/6 "Reo Especial" James Reid has had a snake guide dislodged.

Are there any builders/makers who you could recommend that would be able to do this work? I could get the colour of the main wrap and tipping.
James uses colour preserver and many layers of varnish, rather than epoxy.

I have previously sent them back to James, but it's an expensive and time consuming process, shipping each way to Canada and back probably £40 then having to negotiate the import duty gauntlet is a PITA.

Thanks in advance.
Steve

I see that Adam Rawson does refurbishment, rewraps etc.
Has anyone got one of his bamboo rods and what do you think of the quality of the work?

Also found GW Gregory Split Cane Rods doing refurbishment. Anyone?

Thanks very much, I'll drop him a line. (y):)
I had found him in a previous search, not sure if this is too small a job for such a top class builder?
He did a similar job for a friend of mine. I'm no expert but I have seen some of his wrapping work and it is superb. He does repairs etc so definatley worth a call.

Adam has built two rods for me and fitted a new guide to a carbon rod.
Very happy with his work
