Wrap Perfect Ferrule Wraps

Multi-piece fishing rods come in segments and each segment is designed to fit into the next. These connection points are referred to as ferrules.

When the ferrules are put under increasing stress, they may crack or split, which means the rod segments no longer fit together. That's why many rod builders recommend wrapping and finishing these connection points to provide support—similar to the reasons for wrapping a guide. This process is generally referred to as a ferrule wrap.

All you need to do is slide the extension tool into the rod segment you are working on, and rest the segment on your rod stands (usually centered over your CRB Hand Wrapper), and it provides a sturdy base where you can comfortably wrap thread over the ferrule ends.


The CRB Blank Extension Tool makes ferrule wraps easier than ever so check one out today!

Ideal for Finishing Ferrules on Multi-Piece Rods

Once you have completed the ferrule wraps, you will need to apply the epoxy finish.

To accomplish this, all you need to do is insert the extension tool into the rod segment end (that has the thread wrap) and chuck that end into the CRB RDS Drying System, and rest the other end on a rod stand.


Now you have a sturdy base that is level, so after you finish applying your epoxy, your ferrule wraps will come out perfect every time!

CRB's incredible series of custom rod building equipment, including the Blank Extension Tool, should have a place on every angler's work bench because they are designed by some of the most experienced rod builders in the industry.
