I stress the need to do it gently and gradually to separate the 2 sections.

    It shouldn’t be like that though.
    Eureka. Got the wife to help me and Bobs your uncle it has come out. Thanks very much for your suggestion it was spot on. Thanks to all the other members as well.

    Thanks Ian. As you have one of these rods any suggestions for a balanced reel to go with it?

    I would say something like a Diawa Ninja 2500 or a Shimano equivalent , 2500 or 3000 . I use mine mainly for perch fishing in slacker water , down the side in the Severn . At 10 foot it's also handy for tip fishing canals . You'll find it very sensitive for bite detection but it's fairly strong , I've caught decent perch on mine and my mate has had chub to 5 lb on his.

    I have 2 of the original 10ft and 11ft 6" used them for my small stream fishing and feeder fishing on commercial match lakes. Excellent rods and a lot strong then you expect the to be. Certainly handled match size carp to around 10lbs.

    I was going to suggest using one of those non slip dash mats, I use one for Crystalite.

    For gawd sake don't twist! Or - if you must, do it very gently!
    The carbon-fibres lie next to each other along the length of the rod and are bound with a resin. If you twist you risk moving the fibes compared to those around them with the danger that they will de-laminate. The result will be a horrible crunching noise followed by a broken section.
