Re: Tippy-top tips?

I broke the tip-top off of my Redington CPX 4-weight this spring on the Little J. I was able to recycle the original tip-top and re-install it with 5-minute epoxy. The rod is as good as new. An inch shorter, but still casts great. Any wrapping at the tip-top would just be for decoration and would not impact the function.

I got a tip and used ferrule cement -- the kind you heat -- to install it.
It worked well for me at the Yough, but I noticed it was very slightly off line with the snake guides and was throwing and every so slight hitch-to-the-right on each cast. So I went home and reset. Hopefully, it'll be OK next time I use it. I will return to Sage for official repair when I go on family vacation in August.
