What would be the best way to fix my" middle guides" on my rod? The inside of the guides are gone. How hard is it to replace them? Help...

If its a St. Croix - they can redo your guides for under $30 total including shipping (just hop on the website and send an e-mail to customer service). Sportsman's Center can fix it as well... Or you can do it yourself...

Joe,
what would be involved if I do it myself, or would it be too involving to do it myself?

I've never done it before - seen a few segments on shows about it. Go to a local bait and tackle shop, buy the guides and all the thread necessary from them and I am sure they can teach you how to fix them or even do it there with them (Sportsman's would do that as well).

It's really hard to make it nice without one of those things that spins the rod as you wrap it.  The guides that I have replaced look pretty ugly, but they work just as well.

Getting the old ones off without nicking the rod is also a pain.  Just be careful when you cut the old thread to cut away from the blank.

I just got the Cabelas Tackle Craft catalog in the mail.  It's full of this sort of stuff.
