Hi all, Newbie question here. I have not ever built or repaired a rod, but I have a bent tiptop that looks like I should be able to replace myself. I contacted the rod manufacturer and they will send me the correct size tiptop for this rod model. I understand that I should use a lighter to heat the existing tiptop, to soften the existing adhesive and pull it off. My questions for replacement: Do I need to go to any effort to clean any remaining adhesive from the graphite? Or just leave it? What do I use to affix the new tiptop? Is there a specific type of glue or epoxy for this application? I saw some youtube videos showing a stick that I would slice off and melt it into the tiptop.....what is this stuff? Thanks!
