Stuck rod pieces

Recommended Posts

Presume you've tried the old twist & pull technique? 

How about warm water over the join and let it seep in, and potentially dissolve any salty crustiness in the joint?

Failing that, might be a two man job to just pull at it properly?

No, none of that. The answer is simple.

hold a little bit of twisting pressure on the 2 halves and GENTLY tap the joint with a piece of wood, and they will part.

I was told this trick by a rod builder (century) and it works every time👍

Failing that, tap the joint vigourously with a 4lb lump hammer, works every time 🤣

Yes, remember just gently tap the joint ferrule, sometime they break free very quickly, other times it takes a few mins.

My Century NG's tend to stick when they have been in use for a few days, I was told by Century it is due to temperature and humidity variation, nothing actually wrong with the rod, however, they always come apart with a few taps on the joint ferrule.

Haha, yeah, that advise is dished out by most rod manufacturers.... Don't rub it down

Some silicon spray on the spigot once you get it apart may help for future. Hot water over the joint to get the outer to expand may help shift it. I've been lucky in that all of mine have responded to brute force of the twist and pull variety......

Not at all, but I am a great believer in the judicial use of controlled violence to solve such problems

I suspect it was the change in temperature rather than the WD40 that did the trick.
