Fuji Hardloy Saltwater Rod Tips
A must own item
I carry three different sizes when I travel to ensure that I have a replacement tip for all of the rods I use.
I recently broke the guide on a rod and replaced it with little more then a small jig saw and a tube of crazy glue. Fuji guides are the best in the business and for a quick fix I love the idea of not compromising the components of a good rod.
I have read that crazy glue, Gorilla Glue, and the included "meltable" glue stick provided in the Fuji kit are all effective. I used the Fuji glue stick and put a thin layer of crazy glue on top for additional strength.
If you plan on going on a fishing trip do yourself a favor and bring several sizes that may work for your rods. Otherwise you risk trying to find a replacement rod in limited time or waiting for an unknown tackle shop to make a proper repair.
Trust me. It's an easy fix.

Quality/easy to use product
This my first rod tip repair. I lightly sanded the rod tip to have a surface that would help the glue bond. I use household goop (in a purple tube). I use a micrometer to measure the diameter of the rod tip. I ordered the closest rod tip I could find. I applied the glue and allowed it to cure for 24hrs and used thread to add make it look nice. Total time to repair was about 30 minutes.

Fuji Rod Tip
I use the offshore angler inshore extreme rods, and broke the tip off in the car door. I thought i had a Rod for the trash, but took it to BPS anyway. The Atlanta store was not able to replace the rod because it was over a year old, but they did replace the tip for me and the rod has been as good as new now for over two years. This is a great replacement tip as long as you get the proper size.

feels good to use quality products
the product fits well and preforms excellently, I get further casts than the original product supplied, great to use something that works so well.
