I have an 6.6' light Premier rod that i broke the tip off of last year. i really wanted to get it replaced but can't afford the $60 repair bill from St Croix. It is a one piece so i can't just replace the front half. I lost about 6" off the tip and since this is a light action rod, did i lose all of my action? I have thought about just putting on a new tip and go on, but if were any rod other than a ST Croix, i would be ok with that.
