cracked ferrule

Dropped a tackle box on the butt ferrule of a light spinning rod and cracked it good. Was wondering if I could just give it a good coat of epoxy in and out, thus making it a one piece, and rewrap the ferrule itself? Or am I SOL with this rod?

It's the female part and it's kinda smashed, but not to bits. Only 2 visible fractures on inside. Would gluing the top onto the butt help strengthen this at all?
Thanks, I'll let you know how that works out.
just checked out the ferrule and it seems good and strong. The rod hooped over without making any cracking noises. I will have to wait a little to see how she casts, but the action seems about the same. Thanks for all the advice!
