Once Read, Twice Heard and Left Unheeded

I started with brute force then reconciled and asked politely. 



A season of sloth takes it's toll and my four piece is now a three.  The top ferrule fused - any ideas out there?  So far I've pulled, twisted, and grunted.

PS - you've heard it before and you are about to hear it again.  Break down and clean your rod from time to time.

  1. hmmm... not sure if this will work or not. Try keeping the "male" section cool with a wet cloth and gently warming the "female" section with a hair-dryer. You may be able to expand the female section enough to loosen things up a bit.

  2. It could be worse. Your 4 piece could be a 5. Razzle's idea sounds interesting, though it does give me flashbacks to science class.

    Good luck.

  3. I'm with Razzle - you're going to have to heat the top section while keeping the bottom section cool

  4. Seeing as there is no chance of rust on a carbon/resin rod, I suspect sediment build up to be at fault. I think I'll try a good soaking before I try melting it.

  7. Had the same problem. Put it somewhere in your house and forget about it for a few weeks. Changes in temps of the house should take care of your problem. Give it a couple of weeks, then try pulling it apart. Worked for me.
