3 on the go and one repair.  I'll take a picture of the damage and post.

This is my 9 year old son's Payne 101 replica. He walked the tip into an old Fir. The Fir won. sad.gif

This is between tiptop and 1st snake.
No problem I think that I can glue, wrap with white silk and straighten. It is a modified tip that I lightened up for small dries. Should be OK for him to toss Grey Wulffs after I'm done. If not I'll just build another tip and match it to the other unbroken one.

ps.. I was calm when he showed me and so was he. I always told him it was OK if a tip broke, I could always fix it for him.
I fish bamboo..... For some reason it speaks to me.

I had a similar tip break when a tree branch got between my rod tip and a large steelhead - the steelhead won. I separated all the splines and broken parts and reglued the section - now you can't even tell it was ever broken. Some people cover the break area with white thread to do a clear wrap to add extra strength.

That's a bummer that it happened Ron, but I bet he will be quite a bit more careful in the future! Pretty handy he's got an understanding father who is also a rod builder too. biggrin.gif
