If that fiberglass rod now out of warranty happens to break, don’t throw it away. Consider an easy way to fix that rod for more years of enjoyment. A little time and patience will give you both the opportunity to save a few dollars and keep fishing for years to come.
Cut two pieces of the broken rod so that a nearly smooth seam can be achieved. Often a fiberglass rod will crack, splinter and break all at the same time. Cut both ends of the broken rod back until there are no splinters or cracks left.
