Freeing stuck segments

Postby Daniel @ Tenkara USA » Wed Sep 29, 2010 1:23 pm

While Dr. Ishigaki was visiting he showed us a very cool method for freeing two segments that are stuck on a tenkara rod (or any telescopic rod). It's very simple, and effective, particularly if you have pieces that are stuck very tight or one of the thinner segments is stuck. I still recommend the tapping method in the field or for most cases as that will normally take care of most cases. However, the rubber band should be used if you have a very hard time freeing the pieces:

I thought I had postd a reply but it seems to be gone . I am a little confused on this . The clip shows this being performed on a rod that has been taken apart . So , are you saying in the field if this occurs to place the rubber band arround the rod just above the handle section and have the but of handle being the part of the rod that impacts on a flat surface to free the pieces aboe it ? I was just not sure why the demo was not shown on a complete rod instead of one that was taken all apart. Thanks.

There are two "freeing stuck segments" threads. Your question and my answer are in the other one.
