    Is there a certain type of epoxy that I should use? Ordered the ferrule kit today. Anything else that I should do besides making a clean cut and lightly sanding? Thanks for the help

    i did this a few times on my old pole and just used 30 minute epoxy and it was just fine. i'd use whatever the slowest curing epoxy you have is (my experience though is when the pole starts to go you will likely break it again before you have to worry about the epoxy failing). good luck

    it was a newer pole, just hit the sweet spot and snap, the ferrule kit came with epoxy and she's a good as new
