I am laying out the locations of my guides and the last guide on the top section of a two peace rod falls on the female side of the ferrule. Is it ok to mount the guide on the ferrule or should I move it further up the blank? It is a 9 foot 7wt. fly rod blank.

I have a ten wt. rod that has the third stripper right on the ferrule and it has never been a problem.

This rod is going on ten years and has been fished hard put away wet and every thing that you could do to mis-treat a rod.

So I my completely uneducated opinion I would say no problem.
