Could the two votes for ferrule please post why you think it broke there. There are a couple of places rods break, that I have theories on why they break there. Like the in front of the grip spot. (And to the poster with that one, please vote on the poll) I have busted a few gear rods that way and seen many of them bust there. Virtually all of them happened the same way as far as I know. Same thing with ferrule breaks ( a much rarer place to break 'em). I have only seen one reason they bust there. As in most things, more data is good.
