HI Chuck, from the looks of your picture you are unable to extend the segment to the right of the 9'9" mark. You are only pulling out the zoom nearest the handle at this point so that is why things are 1' short or so.

Try some rubber gloves as it grips the carbon fiber really well. So with one hand over the 9'9" mark and one to the right of the friction tape after the 9'9" mark give a real hard pull and the segment should slide out.

If it fails to do that, call us with your rod in hand and we will get you fixed up.

Thanks TJ. Couple grippy gloves did the trick! Excited to get to fish this thing at full length.
