It use to be that if you wanted to stiffen up a rod you lengthened the wraps.

Lately while building composite rods I found that the blanks were softer after wrapping them. I checked with other rod builders and they agreed. Who knows???

For long stiff surf rods I don't think it has much effect. The walls are thich and only the tip flexes, except for fiberglas.

A thin walled blank like a fly rod or flexible whimpy spin/casting sticks is another story.
