I've had several 7090's and they have all had gold anodized ferrules.

This rod appears all original and is full length. But, the ferrules are silver and are totally wrapped in thread matching the wraps on the guides.

Ferrules appear to be exactly same type as others, just silver instead of gold.

Just wondering if anyone else has had or seen a St Croix 7090 with thread wrapped ferrules.

Thanks,
Barry

I have not but I like it.
When together that probably looks better than the silver.

Sort of. The photo below shows the usual St Croix ferrule wrap on a Sizematic ferrule at the bottom. The top of the photo shows a 7090XXL with aluminum 'micro' ferrules. The female ferrule was spiral-wrapped. The wraps are just cosmetic, as are the ferrule colors.

Found a six footer in this post that appears to have the thread wraps.
