I recently bought a new Abu Garcia Black Max baitcaster rod and reel combo. Over the weekend I some how broke the ceramic insert of the second from the tip rod guide. I've looked on google a bit, but would I have to replace the entire guide, or could I replace the insert itself?
There's no way you'll get an insert inserted. Replace it.
I agree. I had that happen definitely new guide. 👍
Rod should have a warrantee
New guide - if not under warranty, many good shops can replace at a very low cost.
If you replace it, tie the new guide on with a bright thread. It makes seeing bites easier if the rod is in a holder.
Replace. Save yourself the head aches and fix never works well.
