Fishing this past weekend i had the small tapered butt of the rod fall off my new Shimano Blue Rose S537R. It looks like it could be glued back on, but i wonder if it won't do it again. Do you guys suggest giving it a try with the glue or sending it back to for repair? It looks like a bad design in my opinion. It tapers up from the bottom of the rod for about 2 inches to the bare rod. It's a very small base and when in the rod holder it doesn't seem to keep the rod very secure and when bouncing around and leaning it puts a lot of pressure on that small tapered part of the base. Has anyone else had this problem or is there a trick for keeping them in the rod holder?
