    Is there any way on removing a scratch on a blank. Not deep but noticeable. Can I use permagloss or cpxtra in that small section or do I need to sand and recoat the whole blank. Any help will work. Thanks guys

    Steve,Permagloss will wok fine.Just do area where scratch is.Lightly sand 400 grit clean with acetone then put thin coat of finish.Keep in mind every time use use a rod it will get wear marks.A good rod is a tool to get fish in the boat no need to be perfect. My2cents.

    You can use both CPXer is more friendly no need to scuff rod unless you do the whole rod, You may have to buff the area you filled to feather it out

    Thanks guys. I know rods get scratched but I haven't even built the rod and I already scratched it. Can I put Cpxtra on a lint free cloth and slightly rub it on or should I brush it on

    You do not have to use CP. Use just a fine thread small brush and feather it out

    Where is the scratch located? like Eric said a guide may cover it. There scratch may also be covered by some thread art, weave or marbiling, let alone the grips or reel seat

    Just by measuring it, it's between the stripper guide and the guide right after. I was thinking that too to make a decorative wrap all the way to the second guide

    Get a very fine-tipped brush and use the CPXtra as a filler. That will be much better than using a cloth.

    Is a deep scratch or just a scuff mark? If it is a deep scratch do a wrap or if it is just a scuff you can use CXPer or maybe marble it . Can you send a pic?
