Orvis provides a container of ferrule wax and an instruction booklet with new graphite rod purchases; I highly recommend its use. If you have not tried this wax, it is a worthwhile and inexpensive investment. For best results, I first clean the male ferrule end with a lint-free cloth, and clean the female end with a Q-tip. I then apply a thin layer of wax on the male end only. Doing so regularly helps to seat the ferrules when assembling the rod, improves casting performance and eases release of the ferrules when taking the rod apart. Please note that I do not recommend using this wax on Orvis bamboo rod nickel-silver ferrules. On bamboo rods I use denatured alcohol to simply clean the male and female ferrule ends.,This is a must have if you have a fly fishing rod. Gives you a much better feel when putting your rod together or taking it apart. Now I am not afraid of breaking my rod, especially when taking it apart, and all the pieces stick better together when fishing. it is almost like a rod insurance in a small green box. Get it!,One of the first things I was taught about fly fishing was to protect the rod's ferrules - and waxing the male ends is a key part of that.
Orvis includes a container with its rods. So if you buy an Orvis rod you get one for free!,Orvis Ferrule Wax is a must have for any Fly Fisherman. This product does just what it says.

A small cost for rod insurance.
