Default Re: The newest member of the family...

You don't have to worry much about that rod.
Fiberglass is stronger than graphite, and I'm sure that it has plenty of finish on the wraps.
Your only issue is going to be with that reel seat.
If your reel isn't centered properly, the sliding rings are going to bite into the cork and eventually chip it away....
Don't ask me how I know that
