Default Re: salvaging a blemished rod?

It is a rod that's being replaced. I just hate to toss it in the trash.
Thought it might be a good way to learn how to make repairs without much risk.
I'm wondering if some "Elmer's Glue" and a bit of cork dust mixed together might bond & fill the cracks in the cork?

If I don't attempt to fix it I'll at least keep the two tip sections as backup parts for the new rod.

BTW - when I called and explained the damage the person I talked to had me email pics. An apology for letting a defective rod slip out, and a new rod personally inspected before shipment the next day was promised. It is on the way and I should have it in my hands Tuesday.
