Compression fitting question

I'm going to re-route my sprinkler supply pipe so I'm putting new 1" pipe into the existing compression fitting at the shutoff valve in the basement. Do I need to replace the brass ferrule sleeve or can I re-use it?

It's probably worth replacing for cheap insurance along with a fresh wrap of teflon tape. Maybe I just answered my own question...

You did answer your own question, most compression ferrules are not worth trying to use over.Luck
