First rod

Quick question, have any of you ever cracked or broken a rod by wrapping to tight? Reason why I thought I heard a pop when I was finishing my decorative wrap. I you tubed and they said to keep it tight to prevent unraveling. I’m just scared it’s under the fore grip where I can’t see.

Chris, I'm no rod builder but I have bought a bunch of them and broken my fair share one way or another. What I would do is load that bad boy up to the hilt and see what happens.
yes, some thin blanks can be cracked under pressure, i have not done it, but have heard firts hand stories about it, we were taught not to wrap to tight, we teach the same thing
