Default Re: How to Maintain your Fly Rod

Dan, the wax I was referring to was a protective finish on the blank/guides not ferrules. Sure paraffin has been and is used by many as a ferrule integrity agent. I like some of the newer designs such as Orvis and Hardy use where they sand but do not paint the ferrules leaving some matte texture to them for better frictional grip. I am sure big two handers apply enormous stress on ferrules and I understand some still tape them like in the old days.
