If not mate just got hold of a matching ring carfully remove the old one with a razor blade.
And whip on the new one and give it a couple of coats of epoxy or yacht varnish would do.
If you want a more detailed guide on how to do it let me know

Burger, if your not a tart do as the sea lads do. Torunament casters buy rod eyes in bulk, many of them replace them after two or three casting sessions to keep performance at a maximum!

instead of whipping the eyes on all they do is tak some insulation tape and wrap it very tightly around the eyes and the blank.

and if its strong enoguh to cast 8 ouces 300 yards it'll do for us!
