It's a 1/4" oak dowel with an expansion spring and an eyelet. Wrapped the dowel with 3/0 and head cement to keep the dowel form splitting where the eyelet screws in. Tried it out as a substitute for the rod-tip-a-la Dan. Didn't work so well, so I spent some time tracking down an old rod tip to do it right.

Thing I am happy about is it gave me a good, clean, tight wrap the first time! I call that a win.
