costs for rod stripping and refinishing will vary, based on exactly
what kind of work you need to have done, but my basic rate for this
is $15 per hour.
example, a 6-foot trolling rod with 5 roller guides and a wooden
butt will take about 3 hours to complete. This will include returning
the blank to as near to the original finish as possible without
destroying the action of the blank; the removal, cleaning, lubricating,
and rewrapping of the guides; and sanding and refinishing the wooden
butt assembly. Any defective parts will be replaced after
consultation with the customer at the cost of the part .
