had to do an accident avoidance manuver that popped the handle off my cooler and sent it crashing into my rod and broke the top 8" off my rod. it's a cabela's ML spinning combo that I think cost $79 or 89 for rod and reel. I don't like to just throw things away but it's also not an expensive rod. I really like it in original condition. is it worth trying to fix? if I fix it is it likely to still feel like original?
