    Default Recommendation for new butt ring for a Hardy Palakona?

    I have inherited a Hardy Palakona. It is in good nick, and fishable, apart from the butt/stripper ring, which is far too narrow in diameter for a modern plastic line (yes, even a Sylk: I have tried!)
    Can anyone recommend someone to replace this ring with a larger one, but still in character, and with near-identical wraps? It would be a huge shame to replace a single ring and really damage the value of the rod.
    thanks

    Unless it has an agate or agatine stripper I would go for a mildrum or perfection. But first check what you have with an expert. Most British cane is not that valuable but some are worth quite a lot of money, particularly shorter lengths in good nick. You don't want to spoil that. What's on it at the moment? The pictures I'm finding online all seem to be perfection type guides so far.

    Sorry, can't help you, but here's a tip...

    If you are putting Butt Ring into Google, it's a good idea to add "Hardy Palakona" in quotation marks to make it mandatory in the search results.

    I think that's one of those warnings that comes with a "Don't try this at home kids!" statement Col.
