Grin,

 

The ID of the UB1 is .75 which should give you a perfect fit to the RT30.

 

Make sure you sand the butt area a bit to just dull the finish. Also, roughen up the inside of the ferrule with coarse sandpaper then thoroughly degrease.

Thanks Al when they say its preground to fit unibutts I was assuming it would leave space to bond the two together What type of cement or epoxy do you suggest to bond them together...

I use a non flowing epoxy called Resco used in fiberglass repair. An excellent one for rodbuilding is U40 Rod Bond.

 

If you don't build alot of rods then you can use Devcon Liquid slow cure epoxy. However, I would thicken it a little with dry powder fiberglass filler that you can purchase in any boating supply store. Just mix in a little to form a paste.

 

Clean up is easy using isopropyl alcohol and paper towels.
