never had any problems with mine although the first time casting the end section came off casting seriosly big stuff whilst fishing the tay in a big flood years ago:eek:, i always tape the sections up now as it stayes up a full season pritty much anway.
i cant remember the actauall gramm,s the rod weight casts thoe.

EXACTLY the same thing happened to mine, too much of a coincidence perhaps? I lost mine when it happened, spinning for mackerel and I am convinced I had assembled the rod properly. Put me off getting another.

yep i always make sure i push the ferruels all the way home, but i dont mind taping them up either as it's a confidence thing now. it used to happen quite alot when i was a kid with spinning rods, they just work loose when really giving it a good old swing chucking big stuff some times.
i have the smaller brother of this rod also and they are good for the money.
