What glue to use?

Discussion in 'Rod Building' started by Thomas Williams, Dec 28, 2013.

  1. Recently the butt end came unglued and slid out of my handle on my sage approach. Rather than spending the money to warranty it I was wondering what glue I should use to reinstall it? Thanks?
     
  2. Good morning Thomas, I've been building rods for a long time and I use epoxy. Five minute epoxy is my go to, or if you need a little more time, the stuff that sets up in 30 will do the trick.
     
  3. I've used Devcon 2-Ton epoxy for years. It's inexpensive, found in most hardware stores, clear, and dries in 8-12 hours. After assembly, just prop the rod butt or tip upright, overnight. Nothing has ever come loose.
     
  4. Thanks guys that saves me a bunch of $
