Default Re: Ferrule Wax Question

Like Ard said. There is a lot of controversy regarding the use of ferrule wax. Several well-known quality manufacturers recommend it and provide it with their new rods - Orvis comes to mind. Others recommend against it, saying that the wax attracts grit, which in time abrades the ferrule joints. Probably the most sophisticated consideration recommends the use of lubricants like U2 or Renzetti's ferrule lube, which is not wax but a lubricant which lightly coats the ferrule joints but does not leave a wax residue to attract grit. I prefer this, even on my Orvis and Sage rods which have a manufacturer's recommendation for wax.
