I use dish soap and a green dish scrubbie. Makes them look like new. It seems like almost any cleaner and a little elbow grease works about the same.

Its nice starting the year with nice clean rods smile

I clean and check mine for cracks and such every now and then. I use light soap or even like a nail polish remover and/or a light sandpaper to clean cork.

Must be a bass thing. I've never had that idea cross the synapses either.

I've had alot of other wierd ideas (just got home from buying 20 new rods slicks crazy).

I might ask the wife is she'd like to tonite tho. whistle

btw, anyone want a bunch of C store rod socks? Just kiddin....not advertising.

I really can't call it a fishing rod of mine until it's caked in fish slime, grime, algae, blood, etc...

I have cabin fever so seeing as I just performed basic maintenance/cleaning on all of my reels I figured I might as well do my rods too. Wow were those handles dirty!

dirty doesn't bother me, but they actually get slippery as they get dirty, so its more about freshening up the grip, so there are no accidents that result in lost rods or fish
