Default Re: Stupid newb question...assembling a new rod.

Don't feel bad asking the question, when I got my first rod with a spigot ferrule it took me a second Best 'newb' moment I've seen is a guy stringing up his rod starting by putting the line through the hook keeper

Spigot ferrules will wear over time. They should never get a smaller gap than about a 1/4"... At which point usually a little ferrule wax will fix that. But should be replaced if the gap gets too small.
