I'm curious about your ferrule plug. For my recent bamboo build (also my first) I turned a ferrule plug out of oak, which means the cap and the plug are both oak. I was proud of the plug but removed it, concerned that while the rod is stored it could absorb moisture and swell while inside the female ferrule. Is yours made of wood?

thanks for the nice comment. We had the ferrules made in the mid 80ies -- I don't even know by whom. The reel seat space is stabilized Buckeye Burl (Pen Blank) stained greenish. I found this very beautiful. Jürgen

They look really good!
Yes, Winding check and reel seat spacer are turned from the same pen blank (stained buckeye burl)
