Anglers find the obvious point of failure on any 2-piece fishing rod at the joining of the two sections. These rod ferrules, if not formed properly, overlapped inadequately or stressed against unlike materials will weather poorly and eventually fail.
The Ark Genesis features rod ferrules that are solid, joining in the right area of the blank so as not to weaken the connection. The result is a 2-piece travel rod that feels like a 1-piece rod when fishing. No slipping, twisting or otherwise faults in performance on this joint.
