How Do You Repair Fishing Rod Tip?

Fishing rods have tips that can break or come apart due to wear and tear, or even natural disasters. The most common way to repair a fishing rod tip is to replace it with a new one.

This is the easiest and most reliable method of restoring the rod to its original form.

If you don’t want to purchase a new tip, there are some more creative ways of fixing the rod. The first is to use epoxy glue, which can be found in any hardware store.

Simply apply the glue to the broken area and let it dry for about 24 hours, then sand down the surrounding area until smooth.

Another option for repairing a fishing rod tip is to use a heat gun or soldering iron. Carefully apply heat to the broken area until it melts together. Once cooled, sand down any excess material until smooth.

Finally, if you are feeling particularly creative, you can repair your fishing rod tip using duct tape or electrical tape. Simply wrap around the broken area tightly and secure with a few pieces of tape.


No matter what method you choose, repairing a fishing rod tip is relatively simple and can help extend its life. With careful application of either epoxy glue, heat gun/soldering iron or even duct/electrical tape, you should be able to restore your fishing rod tip in no time!
