    If you can afford a new one, get one. I am a gear head so getting new things makes me happy. Sentiment is lost when I am scouring the shelves at Cabelas, Gander, or Basspro. If you really love it, maybe you can wrap it with some thread and seal it with some rod epoxy. It will stiffen, but it wouldn't be as bad as cutting it down.

    First comment is the best if you want to save your rod, but if you are looking for a good excuse to get a new one. I think have a great one. Have fun and get a new one you really like.

    After checking the warranty, and before you cut the end off your rod, try putting supper glue in the crack. It has worked for me, if it doesn't work for you cut the end off and shorten the pole. No loss just try it.

    Check with your manufacturer if you have any warranties on it and if so call them and let them know what happen. You might be able to get a new one instead of buying a new rod.

    Depending on the manufacturer, you may have a lifetime no-questions warranty that provides replacement.

    Depends if your action is too stiff now..Ive done this to a couple rods and just ended up having a stiff action instead of a medium to light action..but it definetly gives you a reason to buy a new rod!!!

    Depending on the rod, you can call ghe manufacturer or use an all-purpose glue to re-fix the rod-tip. I had a similar problem, but my guide was simply unglued, so I reattached the rod tip with E-6000, and the rod tip now guides just fine.

    Depends how bad. If you feel like you need a new rod go ahead. But first I would try to fix it. Try it out to see if it can hold weigh after you get it patched up.

    First I would check the warranty, you might just be able get a new one for free. Secondly I would call the company and see if you can just purchase a replacement top portion of the rod. If not you can score the the tip right below th break so there is a good spot to put on a new tip, however you are going to lose some sensitivity.
