somehow i managed to get the butt of one of my rods in a hole in a rental boat at a lake. it wouldnt come out so i pulled it hard and the plastic part came off.
does anyone know if a tackle shop can replace it?
or do i have to get a new rod

you can sand the bottom smooth then epoxy the butt back on.

Are you talking about replacing the cork and butt brandon? The cork is epoxied to the blank so it wont come off.

Email me and once I make sure I understand the extent of the damage, I'll gladly tell you how to do the proper repair yourself, if you'd like or refer you to someone close to you.
