Sticky ferrule

I bought a used aqua bound AMT expedition. The paddle will not slide together. Super tight: actually can’t get the last inch in.The ferrule is a plastic insert. Do I sand it, oil, wd40 or…?


sand it
lightly… do a search, quite common with AquaBound paddles for some reason.

Sand it
Don’t use oil or WD40.

Before removing material
Try some silicone lube spray

Graphite powder
Worked well for me.

use fine grit sand paper
like 220 or above, and a light touch. It doesn’t take much. finish with some spray silicone, just a little.
