Nicks & Scratches
I recently broke my favorite striper rod (Redington DFR) that I'm sure a new replacement will not be available for.
I have a bead on a pair of rods, 10 & 12 wieght, for short money but both have what I think are superficial nicks/scratches.
Any suggestions for treating the blemishes to eliminate possible stress risers. I was thinking a coat of rod builders epoxy.
