    I just picked a GLoomis 9 wt at a garage sale that has a loose fighting butt. It comes pulls out cleanly and looks to be a straight forward repair. What kind of glue or adhesive should I use? Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

    You can go down to the hardware store and get some 15min clear epoxy.That will take care of it.

    And rubbing alcohol plus paper towels at the ready to clean off the excess epoxy that will inevitably squeeze out when the pieces are put back together. With 15 minutes you won't get much cleanup time.
