Broken Rod repair.

4 posts in this topic

This past weekend I was doing some walleye fishing with my favorite rod.6'8" Berkley select medium Gary Roach. This rod is about 15yrs old. But it works great.It fits my hand perfect for rigging. Well it broke about 12" from the top. Is there anything I can do with it? The handle is what i really like. Is there anyway of getting the old blank out of it? I would like to put a new blank in it. Yor advice would be helpful.

I would call one of these two shops. They could place a new tip top on it but you would probably loose some of the action on the end of the rod. I'm sure they could probably place a new blank in the handle but the price might be expensive and it may be less to purchase a new rod. Worth checking though.

There is a way to repair the rod. It involves cutting a fairly short piece from another rod blank (junk) and creating a sleeve to fit over the broken area. I have done it on a couple rods for friends and family and it seems to work pretty well. Either of the companies Harvey Lee pointed you to may be able to help or you may have to find a rod builder that does rod repair. Good luck on getting your rod fixed.

Another thought is a custom rod builder should be able to replicate the handle you have on a new custom rod and you can then pick the exact blank and action you want. May cost a few extra $$ but probably worth it in the long run.

I would go to Thorne Bros. I don't know that they can fix it with that much gone, but I'm with Upnorth on it. If they can't fix it, have a custom built for yourself.

    •   Well, like I said, I think it was fake news but it was still pretty darn good! I like a really tomatoey chili and this one was that.
    •   I like chili without beans but my wife likes them and this recipe called for beans so I went with it.   That's pretty close to what I just made but it looks darn good. I'll probably try this one next time!
    •   This has zero to do with the article I posted. I don't think you get it.   Another one that doesn't get it.
    •     So you're saying that statement isn't true?      
    •   Oh, I see now.   The Feds bowing out completely,  zero control, regulation and placing it in the hands of the citizens, effectively ending the war, will flip the script and it will correct itself.    Crime down, prisons emptied, addiction to new lows, family saved.   Stfu.   You have no idea or plans to swap in after decriminalizing. None. Nothing.        
    •     Do you have any evidence to back this statement up?   Because if you listen to Trump's rhetoric, the focus is clearly on illegal drugs coming across the border.  With a traditional militaristic approach.
    •     The double standard pertains more to whether you have the financial resources to go into treatment and avoid going to prison than to legal versus illegal.  If Rush didn't have the financial resources to hire a good lawyer, he would have gone to prison rather than to a treatment center - simple as that.  The federal government (via the taxpayers) funds prisons - they do not fund treatment centers.   Both are controlled substances, but the reality is the government doesn't do a very good job of controlling either one.  They are still dragging their feet on legalizing or even re-classifying marijuana, even though it is common knowledge their classification is a complete farce.   The legal opiate version is just as addicting, or possibly more addicting than the illegal version, and accounts for the largest percentage of drug overdose deaths today.   If there is a crackdown on prescription opioids, the data shows there will be an increase in illegal heroin use.  Florida is a prime example.   We know there are ways of treating addiction that do not involve prison sentences.     The War on Drugs going at it from the traditional/conventional federal perspective is a complete failure.   Those are the facts, but obviously none of that makes any difference to you, and you will continue to defend the status quo with no rational reason to do so.     Bobby nailed it when he said "syntax error on line 1"....
