Thank you very much indeed Nol!

I wonder if it might be possible to place an order for a tip section for my Allcocks Super Wizard. Since I have it I only took it once to the bank where I nearly lost the tip section due to a loose ferrule. I fixed that with a lathe but then I recognized that the tip section lost it's flexibility and is pointing to any direction I bend it. So in fear of loosing the agate lined rings I do not dare to fish it. I am searching for a new tip section for replacement. So if I gave you the dimensions do you think it would be possible for you to produce one for me? That would be in case when Chapman's do not reply as they have a Wizard tip section reproduction in stock...

Regards,
Chris

Yw Chris,

Happy to help when i can.
Keep in mind that it will take a week or 2 maybe 3 before it`s done, have to make myself a rod first.

Will post pictures of the process and finished rod(s) in the journal section.

It has taken a while to sort out the tonkin part, when finaly found a source (nearby you i believe) my grandmother passed away.

So i ordered from a different source now, also in Germany.
Can`t wait for it to be delivered, and start planing.

Nol
