  1. I need the tip section (or complete rod) for a 9' 5 wt two piece G Loomis rod. I built this rod 18-20 years ago from a Cabela's kit. It's dark gray, fast action and unfortunately not Clouser proof. I might be able to use a 6 wt tip also.
     
  2. Did you try talking to Loomis? They may be able to get you something very close to the original.
     
  3. Hi Steve, yes I drove down there yesterday....no luck. They tried several different tips but the ferrule size is way smaller on their new blanks. I was hoping they had a few oldies tucked away in a dusty corner. They sent me across the street to Anglers Workshop but no luck there either.
     
  4. There used to be a guy in Cottage Grove Oregon I think. Glenn Wicks. He had a barn full of thousands of blanks from all the companies. He could match just about anything. I will see if I can find some contact info for him if he is still in business.
     
  5. Thanks Mike, I'm not too picky at this point...just want to make it fish able again.
