    Looked like I had been fishing with a hairline fracture for a while. A little too much pressure taking it out of the trunk and click... no more tip.

    Well...a savvy angler might try to do some sort of repair. I'm not that savvy... I wonder if you could at least still cast with it if you put a tip eyelet on the end?
    Got a birthday coming up? Anniversary? Belated Father's Day? It isn't well publicized, unfortunately, but (in case your wife is reading this) tomorrow is national "Buy Your Husband A New Fly Rod Day".

    Assuming there is no warranty to apply to the situation, first I would check with Kevin and/or Steve for suggestions or some other professional rod building / service center. If no one was available my first choice would be a piece of titanium wire of the correct size about 4" long and some epoxy. Spring steel wire would be my second choice. My brother in law has been fishing with a St. Croix ultralight spinning rod with a 4d finishing nail in it since the mid 70's.
