has anyone ever used a dab of super glue or fingernail polish on a chipped ceramic insert? ive got a very small chip in one of my spinning rod guides and it is out of the way. it will most likley never effect the line but was just curious if anyone had ever had any luck with chipped ceramic inserts.
Thanks in advance guys! cheers

Super Glue Gel may work for a temporary repair while you're waiting to get a new one.

thanks guys, i will try to dab a little something on it. its not bad enough for me to justifiy spending money on it. i believe its so far on the back side that the line will never touch it. i think it is just a mental thing for me lol

Looks like the front side I the stripper guide. The stripper and tip...the two most important. If the rod is worth the money, have it repaired. If not, well...don't. Lol.

Doesn't look like it is in a place to really cause issues. The line isn't hitting it there often, if at all. But, I'd hate to have that be line and lose a fish it expensive lure because the line was cut by it.

As for brands? Fuji is the industry standard. PacBay is another. Fuji guides are readily available.

Just replace the guide, you'll be happy you did and it's not that expensive. I do not know where you're located, but if you are anywhere near Austin send me a PM. I build custom rods and do rod repair.

Costs like 10-15 bucks to change it out

Not worth the risk to me
