I just got a really clean Fenwick FF9010 from Ebay, the rod is essentially unused but I was curious about the male ferrule, normally I see them filled with epoxy or something, but this rod doesn't have one.
Is this a structural issue or just something to keep water and dirt out of the blank?
I was thinking I would just plug it with foam or something...thoughts?

I had a old now gone fiberglass rod that had a small cork inset in the male ferrule.
On my old IM6 Loomis graphite rods, they used to use a small triangular piece of rubber.
