Default Re: Old Bamboo Rods

Before you force the ferrules and seat off. Make sure they aren't pinned. If the seat is pinned it is usually will be with a small brad with a head on it in the butt end of the seat. The ferrules can be a different story. If they are pinned it can be difficult to see as they will be filed flush. Many a rod has been ruined because it wasn't checked for pins prior to taking it apart.
