Question Anyone Built on a Sage GFL Blank Before

Building a rod for a friend on a Sage GFL blank.....the female ferrule has been "beefed" up in the factory and i am wondering if i should add a wrap to this or would the factory reinforcing be sufficient....the blank is a 2 piece 8'6" x 7 wt.
I have emailed Sage for their opinion, no reply as yet.....getting on a bit now but it feels like a nice Mid Flex action

Hello.. If you would look at the factory rods from the time,they´d a full wrap over the ferrules. I just make two wraps,one a the end,one where the male section ends. On a single handed rod like the one you´re about to finish,perhaps ˝" each?? Yours borano20

Many thanks Borano20, It turns out that one of the guides is on that female ferrule, the wraps will serve the same purpose.....I have a Sage SLT two piece and the ferrule on that is the same as the GFL......no additional wrap , just what came out of the factory and that has been fine for many years, so the additional wraps at the stripping guide should make it very secure.....regards Bevin

Hello.. Yes,Bevin,it was commonly seen on Sage from that era. I remember it was called a piece of carbon tape,that made the reinforcement you can see. Makes you wonder,do I really still NEED extra wrappings?? Go for it,Bevin,use as little as you can,to see whether it breaks in use. Don´t forget to post the results here.. Yours borano20

Hi Bevin
You need to wrap the ferral. Don't wrap it to tight or you could actually squeeze it making it a fraction of a thousands smaller and the rod will not stay together properly. Theoretically his shouldn't happen but it can.
