- Reaction score
I loaned a carbon fibre carp rod to a friend recently. When it was returned she had somehow managed to jam the two sections together, apparently permanently. Any advice for separating the parts? I have so far tried the straight pull, the pull behind the knees, the two person pull, both having a hand on each section, hot water on the outer joint. I tied the handle to a fixed post, and bracing with my feet pulled as hard as I could on the other end. Penetrating oil: been there, done that. I now have a 12 foot, one piece carp rod, that won't fit in my car.
