Hey guys and gals, I just finished a 6'6" 2 weight fly rod. came out great.. then I brought it to work and another co worker had his way with it .. and needless to say about 6" came off the top. It broke off fairly clean, about an inch below the last guide. I had been looking at some sites and saw that maybe a sleeve, made of a lower modulus could be used. Not sure what my next step should be, but willing to try just about anything. If anybody has anything to add please feel free to drop a line. Thanks in advance.. Steve-O.
