Default Bent fishing rods.

Don't know if this is useful to anyone but --------. I got back form a trip to Colo. a while back and had my bass rod jammed in the back of my Outback for about a week and when I took it out it had a permanent bend in it. Well. recently I took it upstairs and got my wife's hair dryer out, put it on high while reverse bending and wala, it's back to normal. I figure it just got hot in the back seat window and put a permanent bend in it. Does this help anyone. Also, if this belongs in another UWN forum. please put it there.

Pretty neat trick. I hope the added heat doesn't make it brittle though. That's what has been the undoing of a couple of my old Ugly Stiks; Heat and bent in storage.

Yeah, I thought of that. Tried to be careful and not apply too much heat. I've been using it for a couple of weeks now catching some big browns and it seems to be holding up. We'll see.
