How to Repair Broken Fishing Rod Tips


When you’re out fishing odds are from time
to time you’re going to break something and more than likely it’s going to be a fishing
rod tip. You may step on it you may slam it in a rod
locker whatever, this one I happen to break in the rod locker and if you have the right
tools with you, you can actually fix it right then and there and what I carry in my tackle
box is a little guide tip repair kit and this comes with all the essentials it’s made by
Berkley and it has three different sizes of tips so that way if I happen to break a lighter
action rod or maybe a heavy action rod I have the appropriate sized tip to put on that rod
as well as the cement stick and all that you have to do is heat up the cement stick and
apply the glue onto the rod blank and put the tip on but I’m going to walk you through
how simple and easy it is to do. First off, you have to determine which tip
works best and this is a smaller tip so that fits on nice so that’s the one that we want
to use so at that point remove that tip, set it aside, and then simply take your hot glue
stick and just use a little lighter and heat that up about 3-5 seconds or so just so it
starts to melt and then simply take it and rub that on the tip of the rod getting glue
all the way around it. Then what you want to do is put some glue
on the very tip of that new guide you’re going to put on the rod. Get some glue in there and then what I like
to do is take the lighter, heat it up, melt that glue a little bit, get that metal tip
hot, and take that tip and simply slide it on. Then you want to line it up so it’s in line
with the blanks hold it there for 3-5-10 seconds until it doesn’t move anymore and then you
can see how it’s lined up. After it cools down a little bit, you can
remove some of the excess glue that you have there and you’re good to go. Have a guide tip repair kit in your tackle
box the next time you go fishing and if you break a rod tip, no problem, just repair the
tip.

  1. or you can just pull out the little part of the broken pole out of the top tip with some pliers and take that tip and glue it on the top of your pole with some super glue and it wont cost you anything except the glue, but i already had glue laying around so ya.

  2. The rod tips strength is already compromised after it snaps. Why not just cut it down to the next eye and glue the cavity. if the eye's aren't far apart just deal with the rod being shorter. If it's a nice rod it should have some sort of warranty to send it in.

  3. I was looking on solution how to join broken parts together not how to use what is left of broken rod. I figured out how to use leftovers by adding front ring when I was 12 years old.

  8. Is there no way to attach te broken tip back to the rod? Like stick a thin pin inside both parts, then glue it, attach and maybe tape it around?
