Best glue?

Rate this topic

3 posts in this topic

I have an old Fenwick spinning (10 1/2', 3-5 oz) with a broken tip (missing about 5") and found an old Fenwick freshwater tip with roughly the same taper. I want to glue the new tip over the old, it lengthens the rod but I will cut the extension at a slightly bigger tip size to maintain roughly the same flex power.. I experimented to find the right length of overlap that maintains the best continuous bend, so the glue has to be strong and very flexible. I would normally use long cure epoxy, but think it might dry too brittle. Any ideas of what might work?

 

Thanks.

You will only need a very small amount of glue since it will slip over the existing tip section assuming the tapers are close. The two surface must be thoroughly clean and slightly scuffed with 400 grit paper. Apply a very thin coat of slow cure epoxy and gently join the two section together while rotating to spread the glue evenly. Align the guides and let cure 24 hours before using.
