sorry, but cant be farther from the truth.....
not only is a really good, functional ferrule design, it has been time tested.
winston has been using this design for a while now. as has scott and a few others, allen(new) and w&m included
allot of older high quality glass rods also utilized this design, so imho your conclusion on cutting corners is unfounded.
