Replacement tip section sets are only $17 plus shipping.

If you do a lot of fishing in the backcountry, you may want to get a set of tip sections for your rod to bring with you “just in case.” It’s always a bummer when you packed in 20 miles in the Bob and you slip on the rocks and break the tip of your rod!
Shop Staff Notes: It’s tough to break a TenkaraUSA rod while you are fishing it -it’s quite amazing, really. Most of the breakage that we see if from banging the rod on some rocks or in the trees but most often, when someone isn’t careful when they event the rod or put the rod away. Almost all breaks occur in the top two or three sections that are the thinnest. When pulling or pushing the sections apart or together, it’s important that it be done straight in line with the rod -side pressure on those top sections can lead to a breakage. Not to worry, it’s super easy to replace those broken sections and you can just do it yourself quickly and very inexpensively using these Replacement Tip Sections. There’s no need to send the rod back to TenkaraUSA if it’s one of the top three sections of the rod. If you feel you need help with this processes and you are near one of our stores, just swing in and we’ll help you. Also, please check out the videos we have linked here and you can see how to do it yourself and how easy it really is. If on the super rare occasion, there’s an actual defect in the rod or you broke one of the other sections, then that would be the time to contact TenkaraUSA and maybe send the rod back to them.
