I have a Berkley 7 ft tactix medium heavy rod that I have grooves being warn into the very tip top piece on the rod. Some look kinda of serious and eventually will cut my line (. The pictures shows the grooves kinda. I am assuming the guides are aluminum? I use this rod a lot and is one of my favorites. How much would it cost approx to have it replaced by some one? I paid thirty dollars for the rod 5 years ago. Could the rod be fixed for about that or get a new rod all together? Would having it replaced change any of the action or way it fishes?
