Broken Tip Guide

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, The other day I went to cast a crankbait and it caught the rod tip of my new shimano crucial rod and completly destroyed the tip guide, bent it all out of place and everything. I'm currently waiting to see if this is covered in the warranty and can be fixed but if it is not what does everyone recommend I do? Is my pole toast? Will it ever be as good as it was if I get someone to swap the guide out? Any help would be apprecaited

Call Shimano, they should be able to provide you with a replacement kit.  I whacked the tip of a St. Croix on a rock, breaking the ring.  I called, and it was like $5 for a replacement kit.

Replace the guide with another one. "It's so easy, even a cave man can do it."

I resemble that remark!!! :D

Any tackle and bait shop can replace the tip for 5 bux in less than 5 minutes. No need to fiddle with warranty, packaging and shipping, or even waiting for a tip to be delivered by mail.  Different story if the tip of rod itself is broken.
