Re: Spline on multi-piece rod
Can you show your rig? I spine mine on a pane of glass with one end rolling on the palm of my hand, but on say a 4 piece, 8' blank I have all sorts of trouble. By the time I get enough pressure to bend a 2' butt section sufficiently, to get it to jump to the spine, its dug into my palm enough so that it doesn't want to roll freely.
Anything over 2' and I have never had any trouble.
