I picked up my first glass rod last week. It's a 8' Phillipson Power Kast for DT 6wt. It casts well with my regular WF5F and I expect it will cast better with the intended line. It needs one guide and one other needs repair, and the loop on the tip guide broke off when I was trying to bend it a bit. I don't think this model is rare or valuable so I'm planing on fixing it myself. Is there a book or other info on rod restoration available? I might also be interested in trading it for a rod that might be a little more useful to me. Something a little shorter and a little lighter would be great.
