I wouldn`t go to work on a new rod with sandpaper. :-O
Give the male section a rub over with pencil graphite occasionally and it will not stick .

This used to happen all the time with Roach/ Carp poles when it was wet and cold and there pretty delecate things but this worked every time .

You need two friends ...one holding a foot down from each end of the joint, they then apply preasure as if they were trying to pull the joint apart.

You stand in between them and put a hand each side of the joint about 2 iinches down and gentle make a rotating motion as if you were rowing an extreemly small rowing boat.........while they are slill applying pressure...they dont have pull for all they are worth just good pressure will do and eventually it will give......its the best and really only way I have done this.........when you get the spiggot apart gently rub the male end with a white candle......."sounds kinky".......this will stop the problem .......

Hope this works It should do

just a very light rub of fine sandpaper to the male end. dont put too much pressure. i tried it on my rod last year and it hasnt stuck since, nor has it come flying off during a cast.

Lube it with olive oil and twist in opposite directions. Leave it in the sun to warm up, this may help and won't cause any damage.

If all the above fails try a 3 person technique 2 of you pulling and twisting whilst 3rd taps the joint with small hammer with joint resting on worktop, tap it don't smash it. B-) :D B-)

If this fails there is always a saw ;) ;) ;)

It would be interesting to know if any of the above tips helped you to get your rod apart.

If we are honest, quite a few of us have done similar things in the past.

Only recently my mate who has a tackle shop sold a light spinning rod to a chap only to find that the chap had superglued the two sections together as he was afraid the top section would fly off during the cast. lol. :D >:) >:) >:)

keith :D :D

I'd still be interested to know if any of the tips worked as it would benefit any members who find themselves in the same position.

Just joined after long gap, but back in the day.... a never fail rescue was to wind a couple of rubber bands round one section (or both if theres two of you) where your going to twist and....... hey presto!

Good tip for all things stuck - bottle tops, lids from jars etc etc.
