If it is indeed a G.Loomis rod you might wish to check the warranty options. For ~$50 G.Loomis will replace a warranty rod with a brand new rod, including shipping costs for the new rod and return shipping costs for the damaged rod. When you compare other options you will probably find that shipping will be ~$20-30 dollars; it is hard to beat a band new rod for an additional $20. For $65 G.Loomis will exchange for new and ship via 2nd day air.

An alternative would be to have a rod builder do the repairs. The repair will likely be done with a sleeve/splice at the break point. Any rod builder should be able to help you. If you don't know a custom builder I can recommend Ken of White Clay Outfitters (302-369-9730). I'm sure Ken can give you an estimate via phone.
