I need some help. I have two rods that the rod tip needs repair. I bought a small kid of rod tip eyelets and the hot glue. I have done the repair to the rods but the eyelet keeps coming off. I suspect the hot glue since this happens when it is warm out. Is there another glue to use? I thought maybe superglue? Or am I doing something wrong? Please let me know.

Thanks in advance

I used gorilla glue on my spinning rod. no loss of sensitivity as far as I could tell. very little goes a long way! it expands as it cures. Once cured, you will not have any problems going forward.

you can wrap the tip a quarter inch or so then varnish or epoxy after glueing

I think Fuji makes a rod tip glue come in a red tube like chap stick.
Works great.

I had the same problem in the past. I now use a 2 part epoxy that you can get at the hardware store or auto parts place. By using the two part you have to only use a small amount and you still have plenty left over for other repairs.

JB Weld will work, it also works on guide inserts when they pop out.

Best way to take a rod tip off is to have someone pulling it off with pliers as you heat it with a lighter. The key is to be pulling on it before it gets enough heat, this way there is no damage to the blank. Did this on an ugly stick spinning rod two weeks ago.
