I do. I have a Scott 1008 STS that has broken twice at the ferrule. No matter how you seat it, waxed or not, it loosens when fighting fish. I primarily use it for chums in the salt, there are days when it gets a lot of action. After the second trip back for repair, I started taping it.Nobody tapes single handers

Sinktip, the rod I had that always came apart was a Scott G series. The internal ferrule (same as STS series) wasn't fitted properly, and no matter how tight I seated it, the rod would come apart in 2-3 hours of fishing. It met a car window on a tragic day, and when I sent it in for repair, I asked Scott to fix the ferrule problem. They did, without replacing the butt of the rod, just the spigot, and I have never had any problems since though I fish the rod a LOT. If you bust is again, tell Scott to fix the Ferrule at the same time and I would guess it would solve your problems.
