Fishing Pole Repair Kit

More than 5000 of these kits have been sold to fisherman, tackle shops and pole repairers since we launch the product several years ago. Included in the kit is everything needed to repair a broken or fractured carbon fibre fishing pole or reinforce a vulnerable area (including adding wraps before drilling for side-puller conversions).

The kit includes a high performance epoxy resin and special ultra-smooth high strength 1k carbon fibre cloth for doing the repair as well as abrasive papers and polishing compound to take it to a professional finish.

A tutorial video is included on this page and full printable instructions, including jig plans, are available in the downloads section.

Despite the strength and durability of carbon fibre fishing poles and fishing rods, fractures or complete breaks in the pole do happen from time to time.

If you're unlucky enough to have this happen to you then your options are to buy a new pole, have the pole professionally repaired or to repair the pole yourself using Easy Composites' carbon fibre Fishing Pole / Rod Repair Kit.

The kit includes all of the necessary materials and equipment to repair a carbon fibre fishing pole and requires only competent practical skills and a couple of hours of your time to repair your broken or fractured fishing pole or rod so that it is as strong as it was before the damage occurred.

Further Information

Size of Kit

This kit has been designed to allow for the repair of at least 3 broken fishing rods and so includes sufficient heat shrink tape, resin and carbon fibre fabric to do at least 3 repair jobs.

Dimensions

When unrolled the carbon fibre fabric is 150mm(5.9") wide and 1000mm(39.4") long.

Kit Contents

Please note, we have recently upgraded our Fishing Pole Repair Kit to use a very special light weight and stabilised ProFinish 90gsm carbon fabric allowing very light repairs (0.3mm thick) to be made, if required. The resin system has also been updated to the EL2, so please be aware that the mix ratio has now changed to 100:30

All materials are supplied in high quality, re-sealable containers and shipped in protective packaging.

  4. Wrap the rod with the special 90g ProFinish plain weave carbon fibre fabric, applying additional resin as you go.
  5. Wrap the repair with the special shrink tape.
  6. Apply heat to the tape (using a heat gun or powerful hair dryer).
  7. Leave to cure then remove the tape.
  8. Polish the repair to leave a professional finish.

Can’t find the answer you’re looking for?Ask our technical team a question.

You can either wrap the tape around several times to secure it from unwrapping itself too much or use a small piece of packing tape or similar high tack tape to hold it in place while it is being shrunk and during the cure.

That very much depends on the size and type of repairs that you're doing. Included in the kit is a piece of carbon fibre cloth that measures 1000mm x 150mm. For a 'typical' repair you would often us a piece of cloth about 150mm wide and 150mm long which means you can get about 6 repairs out of the piece of fabric included. Of course, this would be more for smaller repairs (or things like side puller reinforcements) and less for larger repairs. There is plenty of epoxy resin and other materials in the kit to cover all eventualities of repair size.

Yes you can use super glue to bond together the broken bits of the rod prior to doing the structural repair using the kit.

Yes this repair kit will work on graphite rods. The basic principles are the same. In essence you still wrap around the damaged area as before.

What you’ll need to do is make the repair on the inside of the tube. This is a little bit different but still perfectly possible. Follow these steps:


    
  • 1. Select another section of pole that fits comfortably inside the broken pole, possibly not the next pole down ensuring that there is at least a 0.5mm – 1mm gap between the pole you select and the inside of the broken pole when you put the other section inside the broken pole.
  • 
  • 2. Using some of the abrasive paper (120 grit) ‘key-up’ the inside of the broken pole so that the surface is clean and scuffed ready for the repair to be applied.
  • 
  • 3. Wrap the good pole (the one that will go inside the broken one) with some of the shrink-tape, overlapping as you go. The shrink-tape will stop the resin from sticking to the good pole. Make sure you put plenty of tape on and don’t miss any areas where the resin might go. If you do, the resin will stick to the good pole and you could have a lot of trouble getting it out again.
  • 
  • 4. Next, wrap some carbon fibre, wetting it with resin as you go, around the outside of the good pole. Wrap at least twice round, maybe 3 times round, so that when it is slid inside the broken tube it will be a snug fit.
  • 
  • 5. Next, slide the good tube (wrapped with wet carbon) inside the broken tube, aiming to leave the repair bandage positioned correctly underneath the damaged area of the pole.
  • 
  • 6. Allow the poles to cure in this position fully (8hrs).
  • 
  • 7. Once cured, twist the good pole to remove it from inside the repaired pole. The pole should come out from inside the shrink tape. Next, remove the shrink tape from the inside surface of the repaired pole.
  • 
  • 8. Clean up any resin that has dribbled through to the outside of the repaired pole using abrasive paper.
  • 
  • 9. You should now be ready to hit the water again!

The ideal solvent for cleaning up resin spills is Acetone. However, it should not be used on hands because it will dry the skin. You should take care to always wear nitrile gloves when handling resins thereby avoiding the need to get them off your skin. If skin contact does occur then workshop hand-cleaners like Slig or Swarfega are effective.

No, Our Fishing Pole Repair kit contains EL2 Epoxy Laminating Resin that is classed as a hazardous material. We would recommend reading the Safety Data Sheet which contains full details of the hazards and suitable precautions. You can download and read the datasheet here: Epoxy Resin Safety Data Sheet
