Okay with a small weather window, pulled rods out of rack to go for a fish.
To my surprise the mice/rats have been having a feast on the neoprene handle of my latest road.
Can any one recommend somewhere out west to get handle repaired. Rod is a softball Rod.

Couple of options if you decide to diy. I repaired one with a length of heat shrink - looked a bit agricultural, and was quite hard & slippery when wet too. Another I wrapped with the traction grip they put on hockey stick handles. Nice feel, & still going strong on an old jellytip. If you are keen on neoprene you might be able to adapt the split tube insulation put on hot water pipes.

If you get it done professionally I'd be curious to know what they did & how it worked out.

Give Jeff Murray at Green Bay a ring ... he is IMO unsurpassed when it comes to reel repairs,
not sure about rods but if not, being a very obliging individual, he is bound to be able to advise
who best to contact ....

If your nose runs and your feet smell then you are built back to front ... but quite welcome on the forum nevertheless !

X2 Norcross in Henderson. Had brilliant service from them when required to replace a couple guides on brand new rod. They went above n beyond to source the exact guide.
