I got a rod I have had for awhile and on the bottom handle a couple of the cork rings are starting to show some signs of separating. Pretty minor right now but I would like to fix it before it gets any worse.

What type of glue should I use for this?

Thanks for the advice,

Sean,

I've always used carpenter's glue when I build up cork grips on rods and never had it fail. Separation sounds like the corks weren't compressed adequately when the grip was being built up. I'd suggest a rod-building urethane glue in this case, as it tends to do a pretty good job of filling gaps.

Sincerely,

Salmo g.

Trondak rod bond, widely available, flexible, slow-cure. Great for a range of projects, worth having around if you ever need to repair a seat or something else.

Be sure to wipe off all excess, and then some, as it expands to fill space and is pretty tough (relative to cork) when cured.
