    Some quick tips

    Always dry them out before storing in rod bag for long periods
    I put my unhooking mat next to divvy to standard on
    Take the plastic off them, yes i have seen this left on to protect cork

    Only have cork on my barbel rods myself. They have stainless butt caps and I massage in some vasoline into the last couple of inches lol. This seems to waterproof it to a degree and makes it much easier to clean the mud off. Not seen this advertised anywhere so may not be ideal but has worked for me for years. I would of thought that leaving the plastic in place would cause it to rot if wet as it can't breath. I think the way I do it works as there's still loads of naked cork left
    live life well
