Have you ever heard “if it doesn’t fit, don’t force it”?
Well, I have but I didn’t listen.
I wanted to make some progress on finishing up my St. Croix SCIV rod last night so I worked at getting the handle on the rod. I must not have the proper tools as it was very difficult to bore out the cork. I got it within 5 inches of the handle and pushed a little too hard and POP, the cork split in two. About all I could do at that time was push it back down and hope the glue keeps the top cork close to the bottom cork. I checked it this morning, and it isn’t bad, but I haven’t got to the line guides yet so more room for goof ups.
