Care of your Greys rod
- Never use tools of any kind to twist or clamp the rod.
- Never bend your rod at extreme angles over a short distance. When setting up always thread line through rings keeping the rod straight. Do not hold rod at tip. Your rod is designed to flex throughout its complete length and not over a short section.
- Avoid sharp jerks when line is caught or snagged. Point rod directly at snag and pull for a break.
- Avoid over stressing your rod by taking it past its fighting curve.
- Avoid sharp blows to the blank as this can cause the rod to fail.
- Rub the spigots or joints regularly with candle wax (Do not use Chemical based lubricants). This prevents premature wear of the carbon to carbon joints, provides a secure friction fit during fishing and ease of separation at the end of a day's fishing.
- Always rinse rings and metal fittings in fresh water after use in salt or brackish water.
- Clean and dry rod after each fishing trip, especially under rod rings and the rings themselves, as sediment build up during fishing is the main cause of wear on rod rings. Dirty rings and line will hinder casting performance.
- Keep your reel fitting clean from dirt and grit.
- Store in a dry environment. If your rod comes with a tube, store in this to avoid any accidents.
- Please note that a spigot joint will show a natural gap between sections. This is a feature of Spigot joints and is not a manufacturing fault.
