 Grin    Well i broke another stick .  Out last night  caught sharks ,snappers and a few groupers.       Fought a big grouper for 18 -20 minutes and had him heading for the net .
    After the second miss /being poked and pissed ,he headed south  snap and 30 seconds later bink goes the leader to mono line 15lb connection .    I`am laughing and my buddy got the look of worry ,saying you just broke your rod .    Yere but i know what it took to break  it , besides i think i can fix it ...     A man`s got to know what the limits are .    Hindsight using a center pin , i am the drag control .    Should have let him make another run ...     joe

     Smiley  Not that i need a excuse to make another one , although i have one  in the works .     I was able to fix the broken one .    I added a little more back bone and aggressive belt sanded a ramp on both side of the break and filled in several layers  .      Load test seam to be ok   .     pic before and after ,       joe
