I wanted a new tip they were going to charge me well over £120 with a ferrule....... I thought..... I could get a whole rod from ebay for that
Chance is always powerful. Let your hook be always cast; in the pool where you least expect it, there will be a fish

Yes Loop but you get a new bit of cane that will last another 50 years rather than probably a rather tired rod that has seen a battle or two, remember a brand new rod will be at least £500, probably a lot more depends where you go.

Crucian wrote:£100 for a new tip, £20 for a new ferrule, seems reasonable to me, especially if the rod has sentimental value.
