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.

They were brown over white. Stripped all mine and don’t have the pics anymore. Someone must.

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.

Yup. 541

I was actually going to ask if you had some appropriate thread for a chocolate sabre 500 I'm thinking of rewrapping. I'll send you a text.
