Looking for some ferrules, not even sure where to begin looking. Sizes currently on rod are 14mm(F), 12.75mm(m), 8.5mm(F), 7.2?mm(m) x2. Would these sizes still be in production, or would they be a special order type thing?

Thanks
Colin

Give us the 64th of an inch Dimension conversion and maybe we can point you in the right direction. LOL

So looks like the top two might be the hardest to find 35/64 & 33/64, anyone have any thoughts? or am I way off base on what I'm looking for?

You didn't mention if the originals were NS or brass. Some of those old rods used brass. The sizes you are looking for can be made from drawn tubing but, they will be expensive. Just depends on how bad you want them.

Both whistling1.gif , old salmon rod.

Jerry, the originals are brass, very worn and tarnished.
