Re: Possible to salvage handle?
Aaaacckkkk! If you haven't thrown it away yet ... you CAN save the handle to use on a different rod. Put the end of the rod in a baggie and submerge it in boiling water for a few minutes. Remove it from the water, and using hot pad holders, grasp the end of the handle and the crushed rod and pull them apart. If it's not loose enough, repeat the process. The epoxy should break loose, leaving you a workable handle.
