I've done that kind of repair… Years ago when I started guiding, a guide/fly shop owner told me that if I wanted to call myself a fly fishing guide I needed to invest in some good quality fishing tackle. Quality tackle would preform better, and last longer. It would also instill confidence I'm my clients and enhance my credibility as a professional guide. One of the side benefits… most quality rods have a lifetime guarantee. I've had rod tips snapped off in electric car windows, crushed in slammed doors, eaten by a ceiling fan, stepped on by clients, and just explode under the pressure of a large fish taking line. In all cases, I just mailed the broken rod back to the manufacturer and if they couldn't find a matching replacement section, they mailed me a brand new rod… FREE.
Those "expensive" Sage rods have more than paid for themselves over the years.

I've also used very small music wire (very stiff steel wire) when the tip section is too small to insert a rod piece into. Ideal is to use three and place them in a triangular shape. I use epoxy to make sure it cures out into a solid mass. Also, in sanding the bevels down, and you may have done this, I put the two pieces side by side with one inverted. Then you can sand any bevel on the pieces and when you join them together they form a perfect fit. Good video, thanks.
