Vintage UL Sabre spinning rod tip advice

Recommended Posts

Hello, I have searched about rod tip replacement and only find what I have done or am aware of. I have a nice vintage ultralight 5' rod that has the tip broken about halfway between the last two eyes. Someone put a far to large replacement tip that I will replace, the question is; Do I simply remove wrong size one and replace or should remove 2nd to last eye so it's not so close to end? About 2-3" to broken part, I don't have piece. Or should I cut more off so the steps of spacing remains consistent? I want it to work well since so short to begin with. Thanks

I'D change the tip and the next two guides to get a progression in height down to the tip, space the guides equally down the blank.

Just for info Sabre designs were picked up by Penn than sold to Batson when Penn went offshore, so closest replacements are now there.
