Can an od builder replace the cork on any rod? Or does the butt need to be replaced?

Does anyone do this as a service?

Thanks!

There are methods to replace cork on any rod. How it is done will depend on how far you need to strip the old cork off before starting to replace with new rings. When you choose a builder do what they recommend needs doing. The finished rod will be worth the expense and look better.

I can think of a couple of ways a cork handle can be replaced without removing the reel seat but depending on condition you might decide to reset or replace the seat anyway. Simple enough fix that even I could do so you shouldn't have any trouble finding an actual builder who will undertake the job for a reasonable price.

Bob Meiser and Steve Godshall do that work at a very reasonable price if you can't find someone in the NE.
