I have about 14 rods, mostly Dobyns but there is one G Loomis and one St. Croix that all have the closed hook retainer and I am wanting to add the open style retainer to each rod. I thought about trying it myself but since these are nice rods I want them to look professional and I am pretty sure doing it for the first time would not look great. Is there anyone close to the South Dallas area that could do this and is reputable?

I would like to help you out, but since I am in Weatherford it's probably a bit too far. So with that said, I'll recommend you get in touch with Kevin Smith in Burleson, Shamrock Rod and Reel repair. 817-219-3049
Kevin does some pretty awesome work.

Thanks! I am actually in Weatherford occasionally so might take you up on it if my job doesn't get it done. I watched several videos and ordered the stuff from mud hole a few days ago to give it a try. Also ordered a kit to build my own rod. This might get interesting!
