    It's here! - Sage ONE kit

    I just received my ONE 4wt blank in the mail. Here is what I'll be starting off with.

    My first step will be to epoxy the reel seat together, and depending on my motivation tonight, I might install the seat and the cork.

    What I like about Sage is that they pre-mark the spline on their blanks, no other rod company does this that i have found. I also am trying out REC recoil guides for this build. They are really nice and will require no touching up of the edges to remove any burrs, another nice time saver. I purchased the kit from angler habitat and for the first time, they also reamed the cork to fit the blank perfectly. This is a huge step which is usually messy and time consuming. On top of it all, they sell kits for the best price on the web.

    I can't say that I have. I have thought about building myself one, maybe next winter. I think I would want to practice on one for myself before building one for you. I'm a perfectionist like that and want to do it right and learn from any potential mistakes on a blank that I bought.

    The seat is assembled. I'm too tired to be messing with any more epoxy, looks like the putting the seat and the cork will have to wait until tomorrow.

    I working on it!! I installed the reel seat and cork about 3 hours ago with slow cure epoxy. I'm heading off to the gym soon and will probably start wrapping the rod later today once the epoxy has securely set.

    I have about 3 antique bamboo rods I was given by my father in law... I bet they would fish but the threads around the eyelets are pretty loose or look they could be easily removed. The real seats are all intact but could use a good polish and the cork revitalized.

    What have you all found is the best way to go about fixin these things up to better fishable condition?

    CAn I just sand re cork down and rewrap the threads, use epoxy or resin or something? Any quick tips you have would be amazing

    Re: It's here! - Sage ONE kit

    Lynch,
    Looking good so far..one question how comes there is no second locking ring?just curious.

    ---------- Post added at 01:38 PM ---------- Previous post was at 01:34 PM ----------

    Nickle,
    thers more to it than just wrapping the guides..the cork can renewed real easily as long as it isnt coming apart in rings, use what is called a wonder cloth or a micro fiber an wet it dont try to twist the handle off but wrap it around an roll it in your grip, as for the guides i would consult a bamboo repair guy not that lycnh cant fix it but you might compromise the finish which is varnish..might be better off having a bamboo guy look at it an see if is worth refurbishing....i have a Horrocks Ibbotson that Art weiler Refurbished an it is a great 6 wt was worth it to me to get redone your milage may vary good luck!

    Re: It's here! - Sage ONE kit

    Someone else posted awhile back trying gojo to clean the grip. It works great using the above mentioned microfiber. If you want to sand it, use very fine paper, like 800 grit. It's time consuming, but will give you a smooth finish and only take the surface off the cork. Fill the pits with cork putty, resand, then seal with U-40 cork seal.

    As far as working with bamboo, I have no experience messing with them, but others on here do. Check out the blog section, Tomfly did a very nice and detailed post on redoing a bamboo from stripping it down to finishing it.
