Broken rod tip

9 posts in this topic

I foolishly broke off the tip of my rod yesterday. I purchased the rod at Cabelas over a year ago and have no receipt, but they probably don't replace rods broken by clumsy users anyway. Is there any way to reattach the tip or am I out of luck? Any advise is appreciated guys.

It's worth calling Cabela's and see what they say. There are shops that can replace broken rod tips.

How far doen did you break it??

You can probably fix it yourself if Cabela's won't replace it for you. Go to a tackle shop and get a tip top that will fit over the blank and hot glue it back in place or use some two part epoxy.

I would ask Cabela's if they cover it. Worst case they can say no. Best case you get a new rod. It's always worth a try.

I don't think 2-3 inches is beyond repair. I also think I try to put a new one on yhourself. I've done it a few times and found that slipping a short piece of "Shrink wrap" before gluing the new one on then slip the heat shrink over the glued tip and a inch or so on the rod.

Hey guys, good tip starting with Cabelas, I swung in yesterday. The guys in the rod department said the rod discontinued in 2006 and only had a 2 year warranty. I told him, truthfully, that I had purchased the rod less than 2 years ago but no longer had a receipt . They ended up swapping out my 2006 Tourney Trail for a brand new 2009 model. Keep those receipts in a careful place!

That's Cabela's for you. They know how to keep customers coming back.

    • This is great... I barely finished my '17 Yetti and now its already outdated.
    •   I'm on my second copy, the binding is not very good and before you know it pages begin to fall out, but as far as explaining technique, meat handling safety, use of curing salts and spices I think the book is a great resource.  I've given several copies to friends.  As far as the recipes, they are somewhat standard, but the same can be said for many other sausage books or online sources. I seem to make personal changes (like increasing garlic and black pepper) to most sausage recipes plus I sample a pattie to access the seasonings and will adjust if needed. I do think the amount of added fat is a little heavy handed for me, I find ground pork butt to perfect for me.  I prefer to make my own seasoning mix, and use very fresh spices... We order 3 times a year from spice companies to keep everything fresh, I only buy spices from the grocery store in an emergency, there is no guarantee of their freshness. 
    •   Auu, great plan. Oh by the way. Those aren't nails sticking through the roof sheeting is it? You may find a Shishkabob bird some morning if they get to running each other around in there!
    •   Auu, since it's not a Faith based discussion it should be pretty easy for you both to use humanist science facts to come to the same conclusion and agreement. Carry on!  
    • If our politicians were serious about reducing the cost of healthcare  they would be addressing the big pharma companies.   Check this out: http://wendellpotter.com/2016/03/the-lobbyist-who-made-you-pay-more-at-the-drugstore/    In my simple view of the world all that would be needed is a law passed saying the pharmaceutical companies could not charge more than 10% for the same drugs as is being charged by the next highest countries cost.  That would save Trillions over a 10 year period ( Caveat, I made that number up, but you get the idea )
