It can be done and has been done, talk to Enigma on the forum he is our master rod builder.

Hi

it is possible but I don't know if there are builders close by.

If I do it for you then we have to ship up and down from PMB to PTA, probably around R400-450 unless you have a mate traveling up, maybe I'll be passing PMB in June and pick up for you.

The T53 Galaxy is a strong weave and resistant to splitting so we make up spiggots inser them from the bitt section and re-inforce the joint area.

Spiggot joints and the work will cost between R120-150 a rod

Yip it's possible but you need suitable material to make the joints ie, an old broken rod of the same taper as the rods to be joined.

Once you got that i'll help you with a tutorial

Uhm can you maybe send me the tutorial so I can just make sure if I can do it? I understand you are quite good at it, so maybe I won't be able to do it.
