Fishin World is a looong way south. Would like to save some time both ways if possible. I had a guide insert pop out at the rod tip. TIA.

Get a replacement tip at Academy and look up how to replace online. The tip is a DIY project if you want.

You can get the tip and or guides at Barlows Tackle on 75 in Richardson. They can tell you how to do it and might even put the tip on for you.

At Barlow's they will usually fit the tip for you and install it. It is likely that it is a 5.5, 6 or 6.5 and I think these are the sizes that come in the Fuji 3 guide set sold online and at some Academy's.
Fuji Micro Tip Repair Kit You will also need one of the glue sticks.
Also, you can contact your rod manufacturer and they can tell you what size for that model.
