my 7119 started out the same, but looks way worse than that pic. it now has several hondred hours use. same with vxp. both started after a few dozen hours, and are both right at about a year old. deathstar i have, a year or so older, is fine. maybe all these rods were built around the same time. i use wax, and never had them loosen or stick.
fishing over redds causes erectile dysfunction. karma is everywhere !
