So I ordered a new rod to replace the one that broke last week, my question is I broke one inch of the end of that pole and of course the last guide ,do you think it would be worth fixing , and be close to the same sensitivity, if not then I think no point in spending even one penny more , but again was an inch , which still leaves maybe two and a half to the next guide, the rod was not expensive, 59 bucks, but it wasn’t a bad rod and wouldn’t mind saving it if it would be pretty close, maybe I’m over thinking it , any thoughts?

I've fixed several like you explain. You need pieces of a broken rod... one to go inside the broken section of your rod and one to go over it.... a little epoxy and you're finished. Very quick fix. If you take your time and do a good job (add thread wraps, file it down some, etc.), it is almost unnoticeable.

Most tackle shops, incl. some WalMarks, carry replacement tip kits. Simply square off the broke end and find a tip size to match it; the kit comes with a glue stick that will attach the tip but leave it able to be removed with a little heat. Unless the uneven space betw. the last guide and tip bothers you, it shouldn't make no difference with casting. Got a couple like that. Here's what I'm talking about.

I broke 3” off my 3wt Three Forks a few years ago. Put a new tip on it, and overlined it to a 4wt- great move! I like it better now than before.

I will fix this rod , see how it fishes . If it doesn’t feel good then, I’ll put a cheap reel on it and give it to a kid, It would be great if it was really close as I kinda Iiked it gonna fish the Cheat this weekend and I lost this exact same rod last year in a high water event “ didn’t open the bail when I snagged “ when I reached for the oars to reposition myself, stuuupid on my part , the water is getting pretty low so I thought I would look hard for it , I know where it was dropped, little hope really, Lol ! On a side note, got a new Dobyns fury rod , supposed to be the best rod for its price point, kinda excited to fish it , Thanks for the input, we’ll see if we can get the one 3 rod back to casting.

I've gone thru several of these repair kits, and keep one in my fishing gear.  One of the guys that goes to Canada with us seems to break rod tips (both his and ours) all the time.  He's kinda clumsy in the boat.  That kit has kept us from throwing him overboard and leaving him in a remote Canadian lake on several occasions.  But the kit works great in a pinch.
