Most people that tape the joints use standard PVC insulating tape but use this instead

Amalgamating Tape

It stretches & tries to return to it's original state is waterproof & seamless  Does not leave any residue when removed & the same piece can be used more than a few times, just cut about 8-12" from the reel (10m x 19mm) & wind tightly around the ferrule with slight over lap. Clockwise or anticlockwise depending if you are left or right handed caster

Can't fish with confidence without taping the joints first.
Probably nonsense but works for me.

I no longer bother taping joints. I uses two 6 piece Guideline NT8 salmon rods, stick them together on Monday morning, then pull them to bits with ease 2 weeks later. I check them first thing every morning, but they never move. Most modern rods are like that, and none of my friends tape joints.
