Hola, I am on to my second rod now (geesh, I haven't even fished the first one yet!) and was wondering two things: 1) What tip-top adhesives do you prefer? 2) What method do you use to apply the adhesive and tip-top? On my first rod I used a Flex Coat tip-top adhesive stick that you heat with a lighter. It didn't seem to melt and stay viscous long enough for me to apply it with care - I had to work quickly and it seemed to dry almost immediately after I applied it to the rod tip. My rod building guide (by Kirkman) suggests using a 5-minute epoxy but there is little instruction in the manual on how to apply it. Comments?
