Default Read if you have a 9' 5wt Saint Croix Rio Santo

I recently broke the butt section on my 9' 5wt St. Croix Rio Santo. I'm not sending it for warranty so if any one wants the 3 sections and handle for spare parts let me know.

Call St. Croix and ask about purchasing a new tip section. St. Croix's warranty is a bit of a scam. I broke the tip section of my Premier, warranty would have cost me around $120can by the time I paid the shipping, customs fees, duties and dollar conversion. If I just paid for a new section it was 35USD shipped to my door. Of course my part is on back order but should be here soon.
Tel: (800) 826-7042, You may have to call multiple times to get through. IIRC, they dont have call waiting.

I'm looking for a new cork for my St. Croix legend. Is it salvageable?

Cork is easy to fix
Go to dollar store buy a wine cork or out of a wine bottle grind it up into small pieces take a q tip and put in white glue where cork duvet is then take that q tip that some white glue on it and then pick up cork and fill divet when dry sand down with fine sandpaper
