Just so I don't repeat the problem, how did you do it? Are the tips fragile? I just bought my first Taco yesterday.

Bev posted the web site for Tica, maybe they list "authorized" repair shops?

test casting 6, heard a snap, and there it went.

it may have been damaged before, the wife tends to reel in to far and the snaps have hit it on occasion

i'll look on ticas site, but id prefer to find someone to stick a fuji on there

Don's Rod Repair in Salisbury 410-548-5865 or bring it to me at Gander Mountain . It's an easy fix and not expensive . Closer to you would be Larry Hitch in Eden on Rt 13 :)

I think most everyone can put a tip on, dunno' about a Fuji though.

Lynn at Delmarva has tips, as do Bev n Terry probably.

Maybe you can order one through them????

Ok, tried this msg twice and edited it 'cuz others had posted.

SeaBass seems to have the answer, if they are Fuji tips....

hitch does it? good i know where that is, i go by it on the way home everyday, got the tip in the truck, i'll stop by tonite.

im afraid to go in gander mountain too often, there are too many temptations.

well, just an FYI for the future. all my rods have small colored plastic beads on them, so that when you (or others) reel in lures or hardware the bead hits the top guide first instead of some metal lure, snap or swivel.

I have Fuji on several of my rods and the guides have been holding up better than the rod itself.

the tica rods are notorious for having bad guides. The new Dolphin series are now made with fuji guides and are around 30-40 dollars more because of it. I've been lucky with my 2 year old 7' one but know of numerous people who have had the tip blow out.
