The first time they put it on it broke again next trip because they didnt put enough glue on the tip.i went back and complained and they "fixed" it again whilst laugh saying its hard to get good help these days.
Went out 2 weeks after and lost a monster fish. Think it was a gummy. My rod tip eye twisted around causing my line to fray and resulted in me being snapped off.

Il never go to them again. The old guy milton was ok. The 2 young wankers that are there now are jerk offs.
I have since done the rod with super glue. Got told never to use super glue on a rod but its been fine for 4 trips so far.

Yep they defently gone down hill since milton left

Good looking repair. Low bridges are definitely a hassle, I forgot to take my rods out of the holders at Mordi once when coming in under the bridge, luckily the tide was out and all three rods went scrape, scrape, scrape on every beam as I went under, miraculously there was only a bit of cosmetic damage and I still use these rods.
Cheers

Great job to save your rod, thought about binding the join with some thread to match the rest of the rod?

Superglue is fine for tips, if needs removal can grind off the metal of the tip with a file or dremmel.
