Hello tight liners,

I have a question on how to strengthen a surf fishing rod and if possible how to go along with the procedure.

Cheers,
Sergio Miranda.

What do you mean by strengthening a surf rod.

Hi venkatesan,
Just to let you know my old school fishing rod has some hairline cracks just after the first line guide and the second crack is in the middle section of the rod so just to cover up the cracks and to make it to its former glory and its strength any tight liners are most welcome to help me out with this.

If the rod has hairline cracks, I'd rather do the following:

1. Retire it, if it has a lot of mojo
2. Fish it till it lasts (but be care about injuries)

I wouldn't worry about fixing hairline cracks.
I don't think it is worth it if at all possible.
The only repair on a rod that I'd do is replace guides or fix the worn out grip.
Even a worn out reel seat is a bit of a stretch to be messing around in my opinion.
