I am going to cut a few inches off of the but of my 12' Tica UEHA, because it is too long for me. Larry - I think you performed this same operation on one of your rods. Are there any problems I may encounter or is it as simple as I think it is? I am planning on just chopping it off with a hacksaw with fine toothed blade. Did you glue the but cap back on? Thanks!
