    Super well done tutorial with helpful alternatives to the pro equipment! I really appreciate this.One thing I noticed was you removed thread wrap that was above the eye but didn't replace it on your repair. Is that extra thread wrap just for aesthetics or does it serve another purpose?
    Appreciate the time you put into this video to make it a quality tutorial.

    Watched about 6 such videos; this was the best. A polished performance, skilled hands and good technique. Great alternatives for the intermittent wrapper. And thanks for the terminologies – will make it easy to find a few selected items to facilitate the garage process. Don't mind my friends using my spinning rigs, except when they step all over my eyes.

    Great job Chris. I recently made a purchase of a couple of quality rods and reels for surf fishing. One of the rods needs to have 3 guides replaced, but I can't find anyone out here in the upstate NY boonies that does it. Your superb video has me convinced that I can actually do it myself. I have a homemade winding jig given to me in 1972 by an old friend. I never used it, but found it and dusted it off in preparation. I just have a quick question if I may? I was told by the fellow that I bought the rods from that I had to use a special guide made by some Japanese company I never heard of. I see nothing particularly special about them, but then again, I know Jack Squat about saltwater fishing tackle. Can't I go to Bass Pro or Cabella's and find something that will work as well for a Novice? Thanks for your advice. I am now an avid follower. Happy fishing!

    if you don't have epoxy you can also use nail polish it works exactly the same my grandfather said he used my grandmas or moms nail polish back in the day to put an eye on and hold all the thread in place
