Default Superglue the eye?

I have 12' Cabelas rods I use to pull leadcore. I like the rods, but the dang inserts on the eyes keep coming out.

Is superglue the best thing for getting them to not fall out or is there something that would work better?

I've used superglue on a flyrod that had an eye fall out of the guide, but on a rod used for leadcore I'd probably consider epoxy because it is a stronger bonding agent when it cures and the leadcore is putting a lot more stain on the guide eyes than a flyline IMO.
