Default Re: Ferrule Wax Question

The idea is to cut down on wear at the joints and to keep them tight when joined. Many Spey casters use it or tape their joints because of the tendency for them to come loose due to all the torque exerted with some casting styles.

I use a Spey rod and must have been born under the proper sign because I don't wax and my rod stays tight. If you do a lot of roll casting and I mean a lot, you may experience a loose joint now and then.

I put a message to you on the thread with your painting on it.
