Well so I had this rod I found and tried to return with posts on multiple forums. Been a couple years now and when I grabbed it to give it to a new fly fisher the threaded reel seat piece fell off. So I gave them another old rod I had. Was gonna just epoxy it back on but then had ideas rolling around in my head. I have been super addicted to two hand and switch rods lately and don’t see any short style ones for smaller rivers around here. This rod is a 9ft 5 wt perfect trout rod. I don’t know how many of you know about the commando heads for single hand rods but they make them down to 3 wt grain class. So in my boredom I found a old spin rod I don’t use that had a cork handle and cut it off and customized it to fit this rod. I used a 12 inch piece of the old spin rod that fit inside the 5wt blank and the cut off cork handle the epoxied it all together. Feels really rugged all put together. Here’s my contraption
all I need now is the commando head to fit. I will order it this week. Might work might not but was fun to do either way.
