Storing built cane tips in tip protectors

Post by Duckett » Wed Apr 25, 2018 1:33 pm

I'm lucky enough to have a whole cane landing net handle that doubles up as a tip protector. As it happens, it fits perfectly the very delicate looking tip of my Homer combination rod. Now, as the tip doesn't have it's own section in the Homer rod bag, I was wondering what people think might be the risks of storing it permanently in the landing net handle (clean and dry, of course)?

My inclination is to think it's OK as I have a pre-World War I Martin James rod which was built with the intention of storing the built/whole cane tip inside the whole cane butt section. That seems not to have come to any harm over the last 100+ years!

Probably the safest place to keep the tip Phil. My problem would be remembering I had put it there. :Hahaha:

That did cross my mind Wal. It's the Record Breaker themed one you fixed up for me. Funny thing is, before you cleaned it up, I couldn't get the tip all the way in ..... somehow you've free up about two extra inches! :dance2:

There was something loose inside one of the net poles but I cant remember which one to be honest. I could hear it rattling inside as I was cleaning them up but I couldn't see anything so whatever it was must have fallen out and given you the extra room. It might have been an old rod ring.

Personally I wouldn't as it will lean to one side to rest against the inside wall of the tube. The usual hanging up in the rod bag with air circulating is preferable.
