Default Help with getting rod together

I have an 8 wt TFO Bob Clouser rod and I can't get it together. The sections won't go all the way on. I have two other rods, a redington 6 wt and a tfo lefty kreh professional that I had no trouble with. I don't want to push too hard and damage the rod. Is there some trick that i need to know? This is my second Bob Clouser rod because i had the same problem with it, and i tried using lubrication on the first one. It got stuck together, and i couldn't get it apart. Cabela's was very understanding about this and sent a new one, but even the new rod won't go together. Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance.

How far do the sections go in? Maybe you're expecting them to go in too deep.

I agree. Perhaps try sticking a small screw driver or stick into the female end to give you an estimate of how far it should go.

Doesn't look like it goes in far enough...

I'm pretty sure judging from the pictures Casey is spot on. Those look like spigot ferrules to me. Welcome to the forum.

OMG!! YES! Those are spigot ferrules! DO NOT PUSH them any further than they are willing, GENTLY, to go!! You'll break the ferrule! That is how they are designed!

OK ... and now that I've got my heart beating again ... welcome to the board!!

Thanks for the welcome, by the way
Just did a quick Google image search for 'tfo bob clouser ferrules' and it appears that that's about how far they are supposed to go in.

Just took it out for a quick run on the lake, rod seems to be working properly, nothing weird about it. It seems really nice. Thanks again for the help everybody, hopefully I'll be posting some pics to the warmwater pics thread soon!
