Default Removing lacquer from ferrules

I recently purchased an 8wt rod/reel from cabelas. I really like the rod....but the ferrules are lacquered. Does anyone know of a safe way to remove the lacquer?

Default Re: Removing lacquer from ferrules

A good picture would help before I fly off the handle with advice. I owned and operated a Painting & Restoration business for years, we did a lot of Historical Restorations which required removing about every type of finish imaginable. After a finish like lacquer sets up trying lacquer thinner won't cut it. There are other solvents that will break it down but believe it or not I can't spell the one I'm thinking of. Without seeing the peices..........I would use a general stripper and apply using a Q Tip or similar and then just clean off the offending area.
