Refurbishing my old BERKLEY IM7 Lightning Rod

This bait casting rod is among the first few rod I have a decade ago and I guessed it is time to give it a new look.

Cork grip stripped.

The original BERKLEY reel seat

All guides stripped..

The former fore grip area was given a new wrapping.

All new FUJI Alconite guides with similar theme color trimming.


Testing on new EVA split handle

The final outcome of the completed refurbished rod.

Next is to test it out....
