Just got my Ardito MH casting travel rod today and had a question about putting it together.

Is the idea to cover up ALL of the buffed area?  I have about a good half inch to an inch or so exposed on both pieces and concerned if I forced to cover the entire buffed area I won't ever get it apart.

How do I know if it is sufficiently 'tightened'?

Do not try to put the pieces all the way together. They are designed for the ferrule to be somewhat exposed. It gives the rod a long time to wear down from puttin together and taking apart. You'll see this especially in surf rods. You'll know when to stop.

I have two of the Aridito bass casting rods and I think they're great rods for the money.  The "gap" at the joints is normal and the rods fish well without loosening on their own.  It's nice to be able to keep a couple of rods in the car!

Tight ines,

Bob
