Hi,

Yes, it is possible to sleeve a broken rod near the tip top.

About a 6" very thin piece of blank that fits snug. After epoxied in place and cured wrap the area where break was.

The tip action will be changed.

I have very thin blanks that can be used. They are very reasonable, cheap!

It is worth the try. Worse case you have a shorter rod.

Broken Fenwick

About 15 years ago I broke a very expensive fenwick. Just recently thought about the lifetime garantee and was told fenwick was bought out by another company. Do they honor the old fenwicks? One more problem, I no longer have the receipt.

Hi bobbo,

Yes, Fenwick was sold but I do not know to whom.

I am told the only way to get a Fenwick rod is thru Cabelas catalog. I'm sure they must be available but where?

Try giving Cabela a call, (800-237-4444). Ask if they know or can help.

You never know you might strike GOLD.

Fenwick was purchased by Berkley many years ago,a shop I do repairs for recently had one of their new rods returned with a broken tip,similar to what you mentioned, Fenwick offered to give the customer a new rod, not even close to the first one he purchased, I doubt if the original blank used for the rod is still made, there overal quality has decresaed considerably since the sale.
