    Default Broken rod

    In all my years of fishing I've never broken a rod until this year

    I had a lovely 10.5 ft carp waggler rod and whilst setting up I managed to wack the tip on a tree and broke off about 2 inch off the tip

    So my question is - I've carefully cut the tip back to the second ring and then using sand paper smoothed the end - is this the correct thing to do

    i have found that losing the tip of a rod changes its action drastically. So much so I've binned them.
    Try it and see, you might find its ok for you.

    Last time I broke one I removed the tip eye and fixed it to the broken end with some super glue. The action does change though.

    Yes, glue the tip ring back on but ideally use a soft melt glue (like in a glue gun) if you have any. Cut some slivers of glue off, put the inside the tip ring tube, heat ring tube gently with a lighter, pop ring on end of rod and align. If it is out of line then warm gently again and adjust.
    If too much has bust off rod end and the tip is too thick to sand down for the tube you would have to order another ring of larger diameter tube. The old ring should come off the broken tip easily with some heat.

    problem is I couldn't find the broken tip - so I did a Boggit and Scarper job - I've not fished with it yet due to lack of confidence

    Use the rod for growing beans up, repair it by buying a new rod.

    Best thing to do is sell all your carp rods and stop fishing for over stocked ratfish pasties and take up fly fishing for native brown trout on wild rivers.
