Nice kit.

If I recall correctly, though, my Conolons used plain old perfection guides and tips.

Something like this:

As a matter of fact, I was something of a klutz for a while and had a run of broken tips. It got to the point where I usually had a had a couple of extra tips and a glue stick in my tackle box.

Actually, if the guy with the broken tip wants to save a few bucks, it's a simple matter to just buy a snug tip and a glue stick. Melt the tip of the glue stick and rub off a little bit into a little worm shape. Shove the glue into the new tip, hold the new tip with needlenose, heat it with a lighter till the glue is bubbly, then shove it on the rod. Eyeball it straight, and Presto.... new tip.

Most of the tips I;ve seen broken are because people pull down on the line trying to get enough slack to tie something on.
