    Default Broke the tip on my Tenryu Rayz Alter 6'2 UL-S

    I wonder where I can buy a tip for this pole, or can I? A big catfish broke the tip section today, makes me sick.

    I hate to hear that. What pound test line were you using? I would contact Chris at Finesse Fishing about a replacement top.

    Ouch, hope you can get it replaced. The ABU 6.10L spanked a big carp the other evening…..after I chased him down with the trolling motor.

    Hope Chris can fix you up. That hurt. Do you think the true test of 2lb SOS did you in? I don’t know the rating of your rod.

    I think it was my fault. I accidentally stepped on the very same area it broke last week while bank fishing on rip-rap. I was astounded that it didn't break at the time. It appeared to have held up and I landed a few fish on it since.

    When the big catfish hit yesterday, I think it stressed the area I accidentally stepped on and it simply gave out. So no, I think the 2lb SOS line had nothing to do with the break.

    Hope you can find another one, I hate the feeling in your gut when you break one.
    Listen to your gut over all the other voices.
