I just bought a brand new grappler popping rod and it is stuck together, I'm sending it back because no matter what I did that thing wasn't coming back apart. will have to remember these for the future
Just unstuck my grappler. Was super stuck. Tried all the YouTube remedies. Nada.
Then I sprayed a little wd 40in the joint let it sit for 10. Then I put duct tape on my rod where I could grip it with a piece of sandpaper and not mess my rod up. One half pull and came out like butter baby

I have a two piece rod i can't take apart. Tried every trick (but not compressed air) and used a lot of force - and the two pieces remain well & truly stuck together. Interestingly, I think that what's made the problem so bad, so permanent, is that I did apply ferrule wax to the joint.
I think the joint should be kept clean, as clean as possible, and dry.
I’m telling u wd-40 a piece of duct tape on rod to protect from sandpaper used to grip. Works like a charm.
