Hi Slater ,

Initially to get the rod apart i wud suggest some hot water ...to try & get the rod apart ... i have also seen guys shake their rod vigourously ... to break the build up so that it will make teh rod easier to take apart !!!

There after when assembling the rod you can use ther pesperation from your nose ..wipe on to rod before putting together ...

I have herd guys saying that you can use Mr Min or even cadle wax !!!

Good luk , hope this helps !!!

Here is a way that DEFINATELY works

8 pieces of wood 1cmx1cmx10cm-15cm
a roll of masking tape

put masking tape around rod (just next to joint), about 4 turns - DON'T TEAR IT OFF, now put one piece of wood and tape that in place and continue till all 4 are around the 1 side of the joing

do exactly the same on the other side

now twist and turn

problem solved

It is strong enough, put it this way, we did it to seperate the 2 pieces of my shimano jigging rod - SHE WAS SERIOUSLY STUCK a rough drawing to explain

the tape just keeps the wooden pieces in place and the wood gives you something to hold onto.

WORKS LIKE A CHARM

The other way is to get 2 guys pulling the 2 pieces and a 3rd standing in the middle gently bouncing the rod at the join. The worst thing to do is to twist the pieces as the graphite is placed under unnatural stress...

sand the male piece very lightly with very fine sand paper. little bit at a time until the male and female fits tight but male comes out without any problems.

a trick Carcharias showed me is to rub the palm of you hand over your forehead then onto the male piece before insertion. also works like a charm.

A great friend of mine had the same problem. Just could not get the pieces out, about hour later after just about the whole club tried to get this loose he mentioned over his brandy with a slight grin that the oaks should be carefull not to break his one piece.

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.

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.

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.

With the rod behind you place it in the bend of your knees with the joint between the knees. Now firmly grip the rod on the outside of the knees. Pull your legs apart and voila!

Here is a photo of some of the conveyor belting, I am using. 3 to 4 on each side of the stuck rod section.

If the conveyor belting is not available. Old truck tyre pieces lying next to main roads, should also work.

Right, after 2 years I finally have my 3 piece blue marlin in 3 different sections again.

I tried hot water first.........this is a stupid idea as it melted the resin near the eyes.

Secondly I tried the block method .....no go ended up scratching the rod. This rod was toight! (Austin powers and fashure.)

Then I taped a deap sea gaff to one end and pulled.....ended up straitening the solid stainless steel hook.

By now I am stuffing up a lot of my equipment and the rod is starting to look like SH1T.(Only used once.)

Then today I asked the guys at Trophy tackle den were I bought the rod. I should have done this first and saved myself 2 yrs of pain.

Thanks guys the tip worked like a bomb and I pulled the pieces apart with my bear hands and absolutely no effort.

The solution: Ice, ice baby, just wrap in ice and leave for ten minutes.

I know this has been mentioned already but not in enough detail. Take 2 pieces of bicycle tube. Wrap a piece tightly on either side of the joint, twist, pull and open. No damage to the rod, grips like anything!
