Climbing rose expert pruners, train before or after sap rises?

Getting uncooperative canes to yield to MY plans for where I WANT them positioned is frustrating me. I'm tired of wearing myself out manhandling a reluctant cane until I get it almost there, and all of the sudden I hear, "SNAP," and the cane decides for me where it's going....into the household trash right next to the last cane that just did the same thing.

Should I wait until the sap rises more, thereby possibly making the canes more flexible/cooperative?
