Rod modification
Can anyone recommend someone in the NOLA area that can modify a rod for me? I have a certain rod that I love, but the handle is entirely too long. I want them to take off about 1.5” and add a little weight to balance it.

Maybe cut to desired length and affix this to end needing new cap?

Weighted butt cap

It wouldn't be a terrible DIY job but cutting a graphite blank and/or handle can be a little sketchy without the right tools and a little experience.

OP I would call Chag's or Puglia's and see who they recommend. They don't advertise rod repair but I imagine they will know some custom builders in the area who would be glad to do it.

try swampland tackle in houma. He's supposed to be opening up a storefront soon. He was working out of his shop at his house. Hes done a great job on repairs for me and builds some killer custom rods.

I'm not a rod building guy but I cut off 2" of rod yesterday and then recapped the end. Use a hacksaw with a new blade.

Thought about doing something similar with my Falcon Spinning rod since I fish out of a kayak.
