5" off a tip that Rod won't be good for much of anything. Good news is that a qualified Rod builder can splice that. Contrary to some assertions, properly repaired and you'll be hard pressed to tell the difference.

I feel your pain, my favorite bladed jig St. Croix LTB broke on me Friday. I'll be sending it in and paying for the replacement.

I just went through this with a Lew's Custom Lite. I broke 2" off a 7'3 rod and they sent me a new tip guide. I wasn't real pleased with the rod after repair. 

I contacted them and they had me to cut out the section of rod with model number and mail it to them with $20 bucks. They said it's cheaper on the customer to do this and that the $20 is splitting the cost to send me a new rod. I'm pretty pleased, because I explained in the beginning it was my fault for damage.

If you saved the tip section you can do this, or have a custom rodbuilder do it:

Previous comment is correct, if done right, you will be hard pressed to tell the difference between the original rod and the repaired rod.
