3M now has a veneer that is much thinner than the stuff you're mentioning. It's very user friendly. The older stuff you had to boil to soften.FAT CAT..... question? When working for Yo-Zuri in the day.... they made very thinly sliced abalone shell sheets in the factory for lure use. Even using "wet" sawing techniques.... The dust from that is very toxic (cancerous). Where / how did you aquire such beautiful / flexible "inlay" material?.... If I might ask? Although the thicker end of the rod bends very little if at all.... how does the inlay hold up on the more flexible tip? Does it effect the overall action of the rod to a noticeable level compared to the standard double/triple wrap in your opinion? You know me.... "curiosity killed the cat".... lol. Thanks for sharing brother.
P.S. nice work "SouthBayKiller"!
I did not know that. I tried the old stuff that had to be boiled and swore I'd never touch it again. I'll have to try the 3M stuff. Looks amazing.3M now has a veneer that is much thinner than the stuff you're mentioning. It's very user friendly. The older stuff you had to boil to soften.
It's adhesive backed and I use a heat gun to apply and it doesn't really take much heat to get it to conform to the blank. It cuts with scissors.
