Well, that’ll teach me to buy cheap c**p. At the end of my fishing session today the top section of my reel seating broke as I was undoing it. Now I can’t get the reel off the rod! Bought this 11ft Shakespeare ‘Mustang’ Match Rod cheapo from dragon carp direct a few months ago.
Now I was also wondering:
a. how to get the reel offa the rod?
b. where to get a new rod from?
c. could the heat of the sun had an effect on what is obviously a plastic connector between the screw down handle and the reel’s foot lock?
d. is this a common problem?
