I figure that this is the place to ask this. I have a Redington 9' 9 wt that I used in salt, stupidly did not rinse, checked a month later and saw the guides were a bit corroded. Now, if I do this, can I cut the windings on one side of the guide, pop the guide out, rewind the cut side then rewind the uncut? I have a very old winding jig, made from the Field and Stream article, which I still have, about 40 years ago. I am torn between selling the rod or just giving this a try to see how it goes.
I appreciate any input and the best of the holidays to you all.
