Now that the off season is here I wanted to take on a winter project that I'm not sure how to start. I have an 11 foot shimano tiralejo 3-7 ounce rod that I really enjoy. The action is great and it casts a mile but I don't like the gimmicky handle they build them with it adds a lot of unnessecary weight to the blank and I would like to remove it and replace it with a more traditional handle, most likely grip tape or something similar that would save weight . Could anyone point me in the right direction with info or books that might help me get started on the removal of the old handle, and then the actual replacement? Any help would be awesome.
