If it is a cork handle, this will be a little bit more difficult to fix, as the handle will have to be taken off. If it is a wood handle, which I doubt since it sounds like a store bought model, it could be heated to melt the epoxy. I would probably go with trying to remove the cork by cutting it off, and then when you get to the actual rod blank using sand paper to remove any remaining cork and epoxy. After that it is a matter of putting a new handle and reel seat on, which isn't terribly difficult, but you need to know what you are doing for sure. If you want more info feel free to email me andylori_1@msn.com
