HI
Just picked up some old hardy gear at a junk auction. I was mostly after the reel but I got a Plakona The Itchen rod, I put the reel with its old silk line on it and the action is lovely, The trouble is the varnish is awful and the eyes are corroded so I daren't use it.
I'm not going to strip it down completely I just haven't the time. for all the intermediate whippings etc But I can manage to put a new set of eyes on. Does anyone know where to find this style eye? Or should I just revert to snakes?

( give it 5 mins and ill upload some pictures)
