I'm sure glad I have saved some of my old broken rods.  I had a couple rods that the lower handle was too short and just didn't feel good. So I cut off a short section of rod and inserted (with a little two part epoxy) it into the but section of rod I want to keep and put the cap on and now I have two rods that don't just sit on the rack anymore.  Not real pretty but one has turned into a fish catcher....the other one "done today" will go to battle in the next couple days.

Here is a picture....explanation will follow fqX6SCuGlAKcL-ApJlFCcBuxc5fVJHDExJWVjgxq

This is the section of another rod inserted into the butt cap with two part and this will be fitted over existing rod blank coming out the butt.

This is the completed rod...had to use elec tape as when I tried to take off an extra little bit I found out they had already shoved something down the handle!!  Oh well .... rod now fits me better...handle was soooo small.nHXHYNjKyZA_sjmRZO7jasbIRMzVoIoB2SVeDLGv

Next time it's cleaner and easier to fit the extension inside the rod blank. Use tape arbors to account for taper. Good for you taking on the challenge!

I wanted to do that like I did on a previous rod but there was another rod jammed up the rod handle.....hadn't seen this before...but thank you for input.  Was interesting that Loomis did this!!!
