busted my pluggin stick last night i dont mind that much i'm getting another one. however the loss of mojo is devestating.

 

the top 3 guides and about 2 inches below the 3rd guide down are busted off.

 

here is the question can i effectively cut this rod down and make it a 2 piece with another top half? if so what top half do i get and how do i go about doing this..

Rowdy, that is a tough break.

I would not even consider trying to make it into a two piece rod. The cost and the amount of work does not seem practical for a rod that can be replaced for around 100 dollars.

So you could try to "splice" the broken section. Or you could end up with a one piece rod that is about 7'6" long.

What is the approximate diameter of the tube where the break occured ?

Does the one long piece remaining seem like it would be ok if a new tip was added to the end and re-arrange / replace some of the remaining guides.

nope to the above

 

it is too thin where the break is and too stout if i add a new top. i think the only option would be to cut it down more and make it a two piece. or strip it and make it a nice gaff
