Collapse em to alleviate headaches


I keep a small rubber band double wrapped around the wires to keep it all compact when stowing or running, so it’s not always tangled up in my other rods which can get really annoying. Then when you’re ready to fish, just slide the rubber band up to the head, and it will open right back up. I usually won’t bend the wires closed and open, as when you do that a bunch of times, the wires can finally get a weak point and break. 

Usually I just slide the rubber band down, and it closes the wires without bending them down.
