just been reading the above mag and inside was an article on the century cme rod, now in it andy miller goes on to say

"on one occasion at a tornament i decided to cast fixed spool"

so he decided to strip down his cme blank and replace the rings with 4 large chrome wire rings at calculated intervals

what does he mean by strip down his cme blank and replace the rings

rings were probably only taped on anyways. most casters buy just a blank (much cheaper than a fully assembled rod) and then add guides by simply taping them into position.

it means that if you "pop" a ring, its an easy job to replace it if its only taped on.:thumbs:

I was given a rod by ChrisP a couple of years ago and that had taped on rings using insulation tape.
they are still in one piece and I use the rod every time I go fishing.

Thanks Ian.

I just had a reply on another forum and it is the tape used for wrapping gifts (made by selotape) that the casters use.
