Finishing Bamboo Rod?

Sorry for all the questions guys. I've got all these old rods sittin around...just want to finish them up. This rod so far I've, carefully removed eyes, used razor to strip old varnish, cleaned up varnish residue w citristrip and shined up reel seat. I was thinking next steps should be varnish /sand a few times, put eyes back on?? Should I epoxy the threads? Should I toucch up handle w varnish...its not bad? Thanks for the advice!

Bamboo rod turning in seat?

26 May 2013 - 09:29 PM

Hi, I am new to the forum. I was wondering if anyone knows if my bamboo Wards surf fishing rod is supposed to turn within the seat? Also, have a Montague that turns the same way. Is this normal and if not how do I fix.
