RE:please, please, HELP !!!

Hi Jason -

I'll ask Smitty (Rod Builder's Workshop) and although I ain't no doctor the prognosis looks pretty bad. If the rod is splintered at the male ferrule for 2", the critical mating of the two parts will not work and thus the male part of the blank (and therefore it's parts) will need to be replaced. I've heard of emergency fixes but realistically, a splintered ferrule is best dealt with via replacement of the section or entire rod.

Is it a 2-pc / 3-pc / 4-pc?

Is it a warranted rod?

Tell us some details!
