I picked up a chocolate Sabre 220 blank and I'm thinking I want to wrap it like the factory wrap. Pretty sure they were brown and white. Would appreciate if someone would post a couple pictures or which shade of brown they used. Thanks!!!
I have wrapped a bunch of chocolate Sabres and I use Holland #541. I am not sure if that is what Sabre used but it is a close match. The Holland thread is hard to find now so you might not be able to find any. Gudebrod had a similar thread also #541 called medium brown but it is a little darker than the Holland #541. If you can't find the Holland #541 the Gudebrod #541 is pretty close.
I agree with Mike. I believe it was Holland thread as well. I have a spool of it somewhere and could verify that number if I run across it.
Keep in mind, Gudebrod did custom colors for rod manufacturers so that is a possibility.
