Default Re: Ferrule Wax Question

I use it on my glass rods always. Keep in mind it can make the rod click when you cast it. I apply it once or twice a month in season. On my cane rods, i dont use it until the ferrules begin to wear. Once they get loose, i use wax to tighten them up a bit.

Dont fish graphite so i can comment.

This works best if you didn't just wash your face. If you don't like this method, but don't have wax, it may save you out in the field.
DO NOT do this to a cane rod. Causes corrosion on the ferrules, and leads to locked sections.
