    Heat gun, hair dryer (takes a while), or you can hold the butt/ferrules in boiling water but I wouldn't with cane. A heat gun is your best bet, set fairly low. If you don't have one the hair dryer is a good bailout.

    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.

    One of the tips is split so I didn't take off the tip yet so im guessing this would have to epoxy to glue them back together .

    You mean the strips are demaminating ?
    What you need to is open them up even more with a series of straight pins so that you can get as much glue in as possible
    I'd use Gorilla Glue because it expands and will fill into areas that you couldn't reach with epoxy.
    Then wrap the area with string to "clamp" it

    Yes the strips are coming apart a little bit . So I wil get them glued up before replacing the tip. Thanks Joseph

    Be careful how you glue them back up. You don't want to accidentaly put a curve in the piece. I'd do a little research on refurbishing rods before you get started.

    Yeah, I probably shoulda mentioned that.
    When you "clamp" with the string, you need to spiral up and spiral back, both with the same amount of tension to be sure that you're not forcing the piece to go one direction.
    You only get one shot to get this right
