None of my Sage rods require taping nor do my Meiser Rods.Jim Cloninger said:Is it necessary to tape your rod ferrules for traditional long line spey casting? Does it mater what type of ferrule, internal spigot or top over bottom overlap? Thanks, Jim
I do not think that is true. I have never seen any rods damaged due to tape. If anything the tape leaves a residue which is easily removed. The 3M tape does not and is the best.Taping can remove the finish around the rod sections and could lead to future damage.
