Compleat Rod Maintenance


U-40 Ferrule Lube is designed to eliminate the frustration of sticking ferules, or worn and wobbly ferrules that have become loose because of excessive wear.

Some rod manufacturers have been known to recommend paraffin for lubricating ferrules; nothing could be worse. Paraffin collects dirt and grit, which damages the ferrule. It also has a considerable surface buildup which destroys the intended tolerance of close fitting parts resulting in loose ferrules.

Ferrule Lube has no surface buildup, no interference with original tolerances and no tendency to collect dirt and grit. The open pores of the rod ferrule, are actually filled with FERRULE LUBE, resulting in a friction free joint which fits much tighter than before, but is more easily dismantled. It also does a fine job of lubricating fighting butt joints, including those with rubber "O" rings, and is a real boon to sticky reel seat tightening rings.

Ferrule Lube is applied wet, but dries in a few seconds. It can be applied with a cotton swab. Metal ferrules should be treated more often than non metal ferrules. Ferrule Lube has been highly praised after lengthy testing by many periodicals and on line product reviews. 1 oz. bottle. $8.95



U-40 Cork Seal is designed to seal the surface of cork rod handles.

It prevents the penetration of soils and other foreign matter transferred to the grip area from the fisherman's hands.

It enhances that "cork feel." It toughens the cork to aid in the prevention of sloughing and chipping of the cork surface.

Cork Seal soaks into the cork and seals in depth. Once it is dry, dirt, grime, salmon egg residue are easily washed off with soap and water. 2 oz bottle $6.95


U-40 Fast Cast A high-tech line lubricant/floatant/cleaner. After wiping on, lines zip through the guides, resists salt, dirt, weeds, etc., and will float better than ever. An occasional wipe down with FAST CAST will keep your line like new for years to come.

Also works well as a fly floatant - rub into hackles between thumb and forefinger and watch the fly float high on the water!
