Hello Im trying to source a cd rod that someone may have lying round that they have broken the top or middle piece
I just need the bottom piece mine has broken inside the handle but do not have the receipt to get cd to replace it or fix it.
If you can help contact me.30/05/2012 at 2:25 am #21054yellowfinParticipant
It may be possible to fix it by gluing a length of rod inside it if it is right down at the butt. Can you post a picture of the damage? How did the damage occur?04/06/2012 at 8:45 am #21086hookusupParticipant
Thanks Yellowfin,I think i will try that,I caught two trout on it alwas put it away in its tube then the third time i used it the action didnt feel normal and i held the rod put tension on the line and could feel the brake in the middle of the handle,looking at it you cant tell until its under presure.

I have seen fishing rods repaired that most people would think were hopeless cases. It depends on where the break is; and most importantly on the skill and knowledge of the repairman. Often a rod that has lost a few inches off the tip still works quite well. Indeed it was the fashion a few years back to convert jigging rods into boat rods by cutting them down. Never throw away a broken rod, or rod section, as one day you might be able to use it to fix up another rod.
I once got home and realised I had left the tip section of an expensive rod at the mouth of the Waimakariri River. I knew it was a faint hope but I drove all the way back to the river to look for it. To my great joy it was still there even though many people would have walked past it!
