Slip tip slide ring glued to shaft?

This might be a dumb question, but any reason why we can't use some epoxy to secure the slide ring to the shaft? Does it really need to be slideable?

The danger is that if the slide ring itself penetrates into (through) a fish, it can prevent the slip tip from toggling.

Re: Slip tip slide ring glued to shaft?

It needs to have a littttle slide, ie enough for the tip to disengage. The reason is that if the tip passes through a fish or even part way and then goes to pull out, the line or cable can bend back on the slider and get stuck. So the Slider needs to move a little to still allow the tip to disengage. (if you are using a slider)
