a much underrated reel i have mine on a sledgehammer and use it for throwing my biggest lures.

im a fan of reels with proper brakes rather than the current trend for magnetic ones so it suits me fine

decent epoxy will set that, get a fast setting one or wedge it with one of the epoxy puttys you can get poundland even do them Wink

If you put a twist of cotton around the rod tip first it will give the epoxy something to lock onto.
