creeking guides on a new rod?!

Rate this topic

3 posts in this topic

I have a new 10' surf rod that has guides that creek?! When you flex it to check the action, you hear it creek/squeek.

 

Should I be concerned about this, or will the noise just go away on its own?

 

I haven't tried out the rod yet

Maddog,

 

The creaking sound is probably being caused by either the guides or reelseat not being properly glued or wrapped to the blank. The flexing of the rod is causing some movement resulting in the creaking.
