Sealing new guide binding
« on: Mon 2 Dec 16:33 2019 »
I have just done my first guide replacement and happy with outcome. I now need some advice from all you experienced rod repairers, should I seal the binding before applying epoxy, and if yes, which is the best. Also which epoxy do you find to be a good one. And one or two coats of epoxy?. Appreciate any advice. Thanks

What thread did you use?
Some needs a colour preserve, some doesn't.
I found Chromaseal the best colour preserver.
Threadmaster epoxy is pretty good, So is Diamond 2.
Multiple light coasts is usually better than a heavy coat.

The brand of the thread is ProWrap, a royal blue metallic colour.

Prowrap is available in a variety of versions, did you buy the colourfast or nylon? - makes a big difference in what epoxy you use.
If it is metalic, don't use colour preserver, it will dull the sparkle.
