I have a rod that the reel seat is spinning on the rod. I have tried epoxy in the openings that will allow me to get some in there but it didn't work.

Any help would be appreciated finding someone that can pull the handle and reel seat off the rod and repair properly.

Fort Worth area would be great as I can deliver the rod for repair.

Thanks,
Donald

The best way is to remove the rear grip...remove the reel seat and re make the arbor and re epoxy and put on a new rear grip

It's possible to repair the reel seat without cutting off the guides and re wrapping it, but that requires cutting off the rear grip... try this instead... Most rods are built using masking tape as bushings to center the reel seat. Take a drill and drill two or three small holes on the underside of the reel seat. Use some slow curing rod building epoxy (not guide epoxy) (I like Flex Coat)... use a syringe and inject as much epoxy inside those holes, spin it around and get it well coated inside, let sit and make sure it is centered. Clean up any excess epoxy before it dries with denatured alcohol.

(I build custom rods, let me know if you have any questions)

Still looking for someone locally to do this right. I want to deliver the rod and not ship.
Thanks for all the replies.
