My dad and I both use 6'6" light St Croix rods. Last year, he broke the tip end of his rod and I broke the butt end of mine. So I bought him a new rod for Christmas and now I'm using the leftovers of the broken ones from last year. Glad to see I'm not the only barbarian who breaks his own pole.Trout180 said:I broke a 6.5" section off the tip of my spinning rod. The rod is a St Croix Avid 5.6" UL 2 piece. I know I can order a new top section from St. Croix for $60 but I was wondering if you guys know of any cheap way I can try to fix the broken section myself.
