    The Gall Of It All

    SCRATCH FROM TWISTING
    Galling From Friction & Dirt
    just like most ferrules
    Super-Z: Developed For Fiberglass.
    Adopted By Garrison and Payne - For Starters
    -------
     ..  Poor Mr. Feierabend. Fine design but neglected care. Without proper use, care and maintenance the mating parts of ferrules get gouged, scraped, scratched, galled, and even bent.
    -- Ancient rods, old rods, even fairly new rods can exhibit this kind of abuse and degradation. If left to itself, without attention, this can lead to a stuck rod - or worse.
    .. Replacement is often the only remedy if the abuse continues and the condition is neglected. Sad but true.
