Tried that one many times. In the past, that has always worked for me. We also tried the two-man method with negative results. I'm going to wait a few days and try again, like tomgamber siad. I tried mute's suggestion with rubber gloves, still nothing. Hopefully waiting will do it.

I know "the horse is already of the barn", or as Jack says, "the camel's nose is under the tent", many of the top rod manufacturers recommend rubbing a little paraffin (candle) wax on the male end of the ferrules. It has worked for me for a long time. No stuck rod segments and also no loose rod segments. Give it a try.

NoMoreCornChuckin, you tried with surgical gloves right? Now just like yellow real rubber gloves?

I got it apart this morning, no gloves, popped right off with my hands. Thanks for the tips y'all.

The hard part is finding a 9 ft ceiling you can stand it up in....

I don't use anything, paraffin wax can attrack dirt and make things worse. Nose wax does the same.

I clean it with rubbing alcohol occasionally, a q-tip for the female end.

I always carry two small patches of bicycle inner tube in my fishing bag for just such an occasion, they give you that extra little grip to get the sucker apart. BTW, what type of rod/ferrules are we talking about here?
if nothing works, you will have a nice 9" one piece!

I found how well tubes work by accident. I used to cut strips to attach things to my backpack. Then the rod got stuck fishing in the rain and there they were. Worked great though I will say that if I can't get it apart after a pew pulls I use the waiting method more so to avoid damaging the rod than because its any better.
