    rod guide size

    One of my guides just broke but I cant seem to findout what the size is. it is for a spinning rod and a half dollar coin can almost fit thru the hole.

    can anyone help me with the sizing?

    Thank you

    I googled this a while back trying to figure out the same thing.

    I also think that Cabelas has a guide sizing chart somewhere on their site in with the rod building stuff.

    I might be wrong, but I think the measurement is in centimeters, and it is the inside diameter that is the measured dimension.

    And you might get more help if you post this in the rod and rig building section.

    The size is measured on the outside of the ceramic insert in MM

    And this is yet one more reason why I let other people build my rods!

    I agree take it to a local tackle shop or rod repair man if you know one and they can fix it and you will have the rod back in a couple of days.
