Has anybody ordered from Riley rods lately? I placed an order in early December and I received an email that my purchase had been received. I have not received my order yet and cannot get ahold of anybody there. I hope everything is ok there, but I would also like to know about my order.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'll give the citri strip a try. I actually work in a resin manufacturing plant and probably have a number of strippers I could get by with.

A customer wants me to strip the guides and finish off of a loomis blank and rewrap with micros. My question is I haven't ever stripped finish off of a blank and am wondering if you just put the blank on a lathe and sand it off? Any help would be appreciated.

I'm sorry I must not be clear enough. i have seen some I ice rods with colored o rings on them to secure the reel rather than to tape them. It just gave the rod a different look than black electricai tape. I am not talking about the slip rings. I found some rubber o rings today at our mantainence shop at work. I filed down a couple grooves in the bottom of my reel and rolled the o rings onto them
