Why is there a gap in my boat rod? The Expedition boat rod is designed so that the individual sections mate , leaving a small gap between sections. This is done to optimize rod strength , allowing ample engagement without butting mating sections. If mating sections were to butt against each other , longitudinal integrity may be at risk.back to top
Should I use wax on my ferrules? If the wax is applied and then cleaned after every other use on a consistent basis then we believe this can extend the life of the ferrule. Be careful to avoid allowing dust and grime to collect on the ferrule.back to top
What kind of line should I use on my KingFisher rod? Fly line is really a matter of personal preference. There are many choices available for all types of fishing applications. It isn't possible for us to try them all when we design a rod but we can explain the guidelines used for each model. These guidelines do not mean this is a preferred line for the rod. We simply used the same line for consistency in the design stage.

How do I care for my KingFisher rod?
- Never put your rod back in the tube wet. The finish may be damaged and you'll shorten the life of the wraps. Simply clean the rod off with a soft cloth and allow to dry.
- Don't try to force ferrules together; internal spigot ferrules are designed to have a gap that allows for future wear. A nice, snug fit is what you're looking for. With sleeve ferrules, rubbing a little paraffin wax on the male end can help.
- When not in use, always store your rod in the tube. Almost all of the rods we repair are victims of car doors and windows.
