RE:Un-stucking ferrules

Great info!

I also use pure parrafin wax, 50 cents for a ten year supply at any grocery store. You rub it on the male ferrule before inserting into... get your mind out of the gutter!.

Because I carry a industrial grade pair of rubber gloves for fish cleaning in my truck, I've usually got a good pair of grippers in case I didn't use the parrafin and have a good day on the water. It seems the hardest times I've had to take ferrules apart have been after big fish who have contorted the rod under force.
