Default Re: Important Rod question...

I had one rod that used to do that quite a bit. It was a fiberglass model and both the male and female parts were not the best of mates. A friend said to clean out the female section with alcohol and a Q-tip and clean the male end with some cotton and alcohol. Get all the gunk, oil and dirt off both ends. After cleaning, they fit better; they came apart easier when I twisted and pulled, but they never again came apart while casting. It appears I had some oil in the female end that allowed the two parts to separate.

In summation..... have you tried cleaning both ends?
