Rub a bit of candle wax on the male joint before joining, this should prevent the pieces from getting stuck.

To stop them getting stuck in the future, polish up the male part with scotch-brite. and before putting together again i rub my fingers thru hair and on face as the natural oils on skin and hair work as a fine lubricant, works for me .....no u not using my face and hair ... use yours... LOL

Invest in a bit of surfboard wax (R10) and put a touch on the rod before setting the rod up.

Put the male section into the female of the joint with the guides 90 degrees off centre then twist it into position (lightly)

The sections won't fly out when casting so no need to jam them in.

Neil bru, remind me to buy you a beer or 6 when i meet you at the bash! Your tip saved my trip. Just bought an 8ft Exage Surf for the Kei and got the blimmin tip stuck this afternoon. Luckily the missus isnt home coz there was some swearing i tell you. Your method is dynamite and its now unstuck without damage. Thanks a million for your post!

So what about Neil's trick?

My dad taught me when I was 6 years old to rub on the sides of my nostrils for all the fatty stuff

But I don't like break-up sticks anyway

Brian. Some tips on this method

1. The blocks you use must be at least 25cm long to work properly as it allows the better spread of torque,if made to short to much pressure in to short an area and you can twist the rod blank off.

2. Some of the rods I have recently had to seperate have an almost matt and oily type of coating on that makes the blocks slip and not transfer the torque you apply, into the joint. To prevent this first wrap a length of twine onto the blank to make for better purchase.

3. If these donated rods are 2nd hand the jointsmight just be glued. Yes people do strange things and itnwont be a first.

4. If all else fails remove the bottom plug or end cap and the use a dowel of similar diameter to the male part of the joint and ta the sections apart.

Use a a slaver if the sizes differ to much as with to much a difference you could just end up splitting the blank if you apply to much force.

I have put a layer of binding thread over the joints and epoxied over them, making them 1 piece rods. Customer suggestion after we could break up the joints! He's happy, im happy! LOL

Can confirm. This work perfectly, but I have replaced the blocks, with pieces of nice thick conveyor belt.

That can also not damage the blank, yet still work 100%

Thanks for that tip. That will work even better as it has added grip and will form around the blank. Now to find a conveyory to cut up.

Packing ice around the joint for a while, and then using bicycle rubber innertube strips around each side to provide grip has worked well for me.

Hahah I want to laugh my head off !! Because I was just as stupid ... 2 years ago I had the same problem and only after some blood sweat and tears did i get them loose. This year I thought I would use a bit of grease on the ends thinking that would do the trick...... BUT it made the problem worse and I was fully stuck this time - it seems the grease causes a vacuum or something and it just would noy budge - hot / cold water nothing - leaving it in the sun for a day nothing - using my lighter nothing... only after having 3 buddies holding on and doing the twist thing it eventually came undone. I then used baby powder which seemed to do the trick.... but thanks for this tip I will remember...

Thanks a lot! Now I can't wait to go and collect my brand new (now one-piece) I was forced to leave at my in-law's place because I couldn't get it separated.
Recently used the x-shaped heatshrink and I think I'll apply it asap.
