    Re: How to separate stuck two piece rod

    Careful with the so called corrosion remedies. They could screw up the rod finish.
    I would hang it up vertical in a place where the temperature changes. Garage or breezeway ETC. Then drip some penetrant into the ferrule that will not damage the rod. Add 4 or 5 pound weight to the lower piece . Then walk away. The changing temp will cause movement that will work the parts apart. How long? but it will work eventually.

    Try this: Kano Aerokroil Penetrating Oil, 10 oz. aerosol (AEROKROIL). It is by far the best penetrating oil out there. Its not cheap, but as with anything else, you get what you pay for.

    To keep them from sticking, back when we were kids, we rubbed male end next to your nose to get some oil on it.
    Forgot but left a black streek next to your nose and nobody would tell you about it until you looked in a mirror

    Re: How to separate stuck two piece rod

    When one of my fly rods was stuck for about 5-6 years and tried everything you mentioned to no avail. Then one of my friends suggested that I wrap both sides with rubber and use a pipe wrench on each side and twist. If I remember correctly you wrap the rubber opposing each other and that's the direction you turn the wrenches. It worked out for me.

    How to separate stuck two piece rod

    Hi
    my dad had this older 10 foot rod. I’ve tried to separate with Wd-40, ice and ice/heat with lighter. The ferrules look like aluminum ferrules

    any ideas?
