    Two years ago I snapped my sage 7wt about 10" above the handle, the blank was a second, and sage would not fix it. Anyone have ideas on how best to fix it? :beathead:

    They wouldn't build you a replacement section for a fee? If not, you could ask Kerry Burkheimer if he would make a replacement section.

    or

    You could cut your losses and start over.

    A graphite sleeve piece could fix it, but I'm not familiar with this method. You should probably ask around at www.rodbuildingforum.com. They'll probably give better answers.
