Tip eyes

Post by David Vaissiere » Sun Jul 14 2019 09:30

A bit of a long shot but I have just bought a pair of daiwa seahunter beach rods and both of them need a new tip eye but not sure on what size they are.
So just wondering if anyone on here happened to know?

I have a Seahunter as part of my late Father's collection, infact I think he nicked it off me in the first place!
I will have a look and comeback.

As long as the old B didnt change it.

Sorry Dave, its a boat rod!

Remove the eye and measure the tip diameter is your best bet.

The ring size will probably be the same as that of the ring next to it. Then get one with a tube size to fit the blank as Mike says.
