Rated 1 out of 5 by Rawhid Braid wears through I 've used 3 different sizes of this rod tip. I'm tired of having to cut off the worn out tip. It has cost me a large bass and 3 very costly baits. I fish with braid and it cuts through the Hardloy tip to the bare metal and frays the line. June 4, 2012

A:YES i been using my replacement tip for 3 years with 50lbs braid
A:Braid is all I use and they have done well so far. I fish 8 or more hrs. every week. Just hate how it stands out on the end of my Abu Garcia rods.
A:Just a touch of heat will break the glue loose.
A:use a long stick match or a lighter and don't use too much heat as it will burn the end of the rod and you will have to cut off the burnt end
A:Heat the tip with any focused heat source, I used a heat gun and it came right off in seconds. You'll have to use pliers with gentle, even pressure of course.

A:Best way is to use a dremel and cut the edges of the old eye off and slide the new tip over the old mount spot. This way your not shorting the rod
A:Apply a little heat, candle or match, for 5-10 seconds. Using a pair of pliers, gently twist and pull the old tip off. Clean and apply new glue and slip new tip on before glue dries or cools.
A:Lightly warm with a lighter and they will pull right off with some pliers.
A:I heat the tips over a candle slowly and use pliers to gently pull the tips off
A:If there are wraps, you have to remove them first, I use a razor blade and carefully slice with the blade parallel to the shaft. Then just apply a bit of heat with a match to the tip, twist it off and clean up any extra glue.
A:Use a sharp utility knife to carefully remove the epoxy around the old tip top... Then using a heat source such as a heat gun, heat the rod at the tip carefully until you heat it just enough to break the bond of the glue holding the old tip on... remove any remaining epoxy, glue or wraps and the put your new tip on....
A:measure the inside diameter of the old tip in 64th. If it is 1/16th that is a #4 because 1/16th is 4/64th. If you need it in mm you can get a conversion chart. Like 5/64 is 2mm
A:I took the end of my broken tip and placed it over the cross section examples on the backer card of the product to get the best fit. Or you could just open the pack and try each one on!

A:With a good caliper
A:I measured the base of the tip and also the inside diameter of the line tip. In most cases I've had to measure the new tip or "hope for the best"

A:The easiest way is to call the manufacturer and ask what size it is.. the above methods are a waste of time when all it takes is a phone call
A:I have a micrometer I use. See if one of your friends uses or has a micrometer to measure the diameter after you have removed the tip and scraped off the old glue.
A:I used a plastic drill bit gauge. Not perfect but it got me close enough to work. If you have a micrometer, that is best.
A:There are two ways of going about this. The first requires you to measure your rod tip using a "rod tip sizer." Just like a drill bit sizer, a tip sizer requires you to stick the broken tip into holes of varying size until you find the best fit (the tightest hole that the tip will fit into). The hole will have a measurement next to it, usually in both 64th's of an inch and millimeters, so that you can order the correct size. Unfortunately, we don't have a tip sizer available, but you could easily find one through a Google search.
Your second option is to buy a rod tip repair kit. These kits contain multiple tips so that you can try different sizes and use the best fitting one. These kits also include the glue to attach the tip to your rod.
