I had gotten my poles out from my winter storage and noticed I had left a Frog on one of them. It is bent in the middle and not popping back to form. Does anyone have any ideas on how to get it back to normal?

put it in some very hot water for 20 or 30 seconds and it will help bring it back. it’s no good the way it is, use the hot water till it’s good again or chuck it.

you can do it with any soft plastics, BH,  to bring it back to straight. don’t keep it in the near boiling to long or it will melt the plastic. but the water needs to be near boiling.

just dip it in to the bent part and count to 15. if it doesn’t straighten out, do it again to a count of 20. repeat till its fixed. the hot water thins the plastic out a little in frogs.
