    Gday all I have been pondering my thoughts on that broken penn rod as it does have very nice Fuji k guides with alconite inserts 8 of those and a tip will set you back well over $100 , and then I got to thinking when I was young I use to fix broken rods all the time because I had to so after running around out the back looking for a sacrificial graphite Rod things are about to get interesting .

    A pity it is so close to the guide, it will be right on where it needs to be a natural curve.
