Busted Rods and Broken Lines

This weekend was a rough one on my gear. I had previously snipped the tip of the second section of my rod, but broke another nice hunk off this weekend. I had tried to fix the rod filling the tip epoxy and then letting it set up. This worked through my first big fish of the season, but then broke like 10 casts later. I was curious if there was any way to fix this. I would love to just get it replaced under warranty, but I built the rod, making it difficult to replace quickly. Any suggestions on a fix?

Another issue was the coating on my Sci Anglers clear intermediate striper line. It delaminated in two spots this weekend, and is heading back for a replacement this week. Anyone else have probs with this line? Up til this point, I loved it. No memory, shot well, good line.
