I've had my Stiga Stanley Cup table for about 4-5 years now, and apparently I've played it so much that the ends of all ten of the player rods slip when you spin them very fast and some when you spin them at all. There is no longer a 100% transferrance of torque. I've tried gorilla gluing them to the actual steel, as well as using epoxy (the chemical cement you mix from two little tubes) but the steel appears to be so burnished from so much spinning over the years that nothing will make the black ends stick to the rod. My left D literally has no power when fighting the centerman and Right D for the puck. Do I have to buy new rods all around (about $100 for parts alone in which case I may as well buy a new table for the same price) or should I try buying new tips? Don't know what to do. Anyone else have this problem?

Jeff

I would use silicone or just buy new black Stiga grips. Sanding the rods should help with adhesion.

A very cheap quick repair is to use masonry plastic anchors, they cost a buck for a dozen.

They might need to be drilled out to match the rod size but they have worked find for replacing a couple missing Munro grips.

Put a drop of dish soap in a tumbler and drop the ends in. Then fill the tumbler to half with boiling water and stir.

Clean the rod ends with a rag and goo gone (or probably rubbing alcohol or vinegar would do the trick).

If that doesn't work, new ends are cheap to buy.

You shouldn't have to use glue, which makes a mess in the future.
