Long time reader, first time poster. Great forum and members here and I really appreciate all the info that I have gotten!
I have read up on spigot ferrules on a fiberglass blank and I just wanted to verify my findings because I have seen the wraps done both ways. I have read that you should wrap the female end roughly 2 to 2 1/2 inches up, enough that it covers up the male end to fortify the blank in that area so that it won't break if stressed too much. But then I have seen a couple of builds on here where that is not done. Is it personal preference? I am making this for my son, 7, and it's a 6'6" 3wt so I am not sure how much stress will be put on the rod by a 7 year old, haha, but I also want to make it as good as I can so that he can use it for as long as he wants.
Any info will be helpful and thanks in advance!!!
