Rod blank top replacement

Hello,
I have a rod blank that is a little over 8 foot. the top is broken and I thought I had a replacement but it has a crack in it.
I don't want to risk putting time into it and having it break.
This is my friends rod that was owned by his dad and he was asking if I could fix it.
Anywhere i can get a slate gray 4 foot replacement top for a L-M spiinning rod?
Regards,
Wes

Not just anything is going to fit. You need to know the manufacturer and model number and then inquire if they have tip section they can mate to it.

If it’s a MHX two piece blank, they sell extra tips for all of their two piece blanks. If not, Depending on where the break is located you might be able to successfully repair the rod without a lot of difference in performance.
