I was about to throw away my lexus rod which had a broken guide and inserts. Some one told me about Kely's rods and reels at 436 south of the chrysler dealer on the opposite side or east side. For 13 dollars he did a good as new job. When I asked him what he does after fishing in salt water, he says don't wash it ,just spray and wipe with pledge. Wd40 he says is the worse you could put into it because it will remove and dry up all the lubrication in the reels. He also fixes reels and minkota and motor guide trolling motors and sells used stuff. Just wanted to share. How do you guys maintain your rods and reels. thanks tito, owner of the feisty gheenoe hisider.
