Whats the best way? I thought of boiling water,not to risk breakage at the tip.What was used on older rods to apply the tip top's. Thanks

Most production rods used thermoplastic adhesive to attach tip tops. I use either an alcohol lamp or a butane lighter to gentle apply heat to the tip while pulling on the tip with needlenose pliers.

 

Do not overheat and keep rotating the rod so that heat is applied evenly over the tip or you will damage the rod.
