Default Taping ferrules

If you tape your ferrules to prevent them from slipping, what kind of tape do you use?

Default Re: Taping ferrules

If I feel the need to tape the ferrules on my spey rod I use electrical tape, but since I've started using this Loon Product I've not had to use any tape. Word of caution, use the product sparingly until you get an idea of how it works. I put a little too much on the first time and it stuck a little too well. Even with the stuff, it's a good idea to make regular ferrule checks.

+1 on the Loon product. I've been very pleased with it. I haven't noticed any rotation in the sections of my rods so no need to realign the sections. Then again, I am fishing switch rods and not casting as far as some need to.

A little of that stuff does in deed go a long way.
