 I switched from Titebond III to this glue on the previous rod.  It is a UF (Urea Formaldehyde) consisting of a resin and a powder catalyst mixed by weight.  It is called Unibond 800.  It mixes very well, is very strong and it gives a stiffer bond than Titebond III or epoxies - the rod will be stiffer.  It also has high heat resistance, which comes handy when I use the heat gun on the dried up sections to finish straightening.

 

      

 Then roll back together and wipe off excess.
