if you put paint on a hard surface the paint will not crack just wear down , but if you put it on a semi soft surface [ cork ] it will crack over time , letting the water, fish grime get under it , I do believe , could be wrong ,

A lot depend on what you can do with the rod , if you have a lot of fly fishing know how, a 8 will do , but if you are like me wet behind the ears on fly fishing, go with the 9 my 2 CTS.

Trolling rod ?? because the rod is in a consent bend from the BAIT an line drag , you should look at a SPIRAL wrap rod , so it would not rotate in the rod holders when trolling I think

Depending on when they were made , the newer ones say you don't have to wrap the Ferrules , I just feel better if I wrap the ferrules, no matter when it was made , it don't hurt a thing & I feel better , some builder's [ like me ] do wrap, some don't , ,

The answer is yes . any thing you but on a blank will effect it , saying that will you be able to tell ?? only you can tell , it depends on how light your feel is . an when you are fishing with line , BAIT OR TACKLE on a boat that is bouncing a little , who knows what you can feel , I don't know the answer , that is what I think
