Question Shimano calcutta 700 rod match

Broken tip on shimano tallus blue water series TLC70-MHBBL. Should I replace with same rod or something better in the $150 price range all purpose rod and reel from trolling in the yak for kings/mahi/sails/bft to bottom fishing for snapper and maybe even a small AJ or grouper. Thanks in advance for suggestions and or advise.

I love all of my shimano tallus rods I have 10+ of them so my vote is replace it with the same rod? But curious how did it break?

unknown still trying to sort it out, I had a chipped ceramic insert in the previous tip and it and I had it recently replaced. I caught a snake king and once I bled him and went to rebait I noticed it was completely off and hanging in line above my duster and I thought it had simply come unglued however not the case, broke off right at joint.

Put a new tip on the rod, and keep using it. The rod may be a little stiffer.

What Bucky said, replace tip. If it broke right at the tip putting a new one one is not going to lose a lot of rod length and either action will be close to same or a tad stiffer but you probably won't notice much difference.

Had the same thing happened on one of my inshore live bait rods. Replaced tip and only difference I noticed was the loading up for hook set after that most of the fight is transferred to the middle section of the rod from the second to fourth or fifth guide down from the top. Just my .02

replacing the tip is what got me in this predicament in the first place not feeling very confident replacing it again.

Right now you have nothing to lose. Make sure the rod surface is clean, wipe down with alcohol or mineral spirits. Use ferrule glue and use more than you think you need, just wipe off excess and allow to dry/cure properly. Check to insure it is aligned with your other guides.

Now that this will be the third rod tip could be you have got a defective rod. Just go get another just in case, either way you will use it eventually.

At least find someone to give it to, don't throw the old rod away.
