    This is a old conolon rod was pretty beat up, I strip it wet sanded it down and re-coated it. Good 30lb stick 8ft 3 well i have wanted to try a spril wrap so i did this one up and going to se how it fishes. N IMG_1822.jpg IMG_1960.jpg IMG_1961.jpg IMG_1964.jpg IMG_1968.jpg othing fancy did under wraps on the feet guides then wrap over them, but stopped the under wraps it so i could still see the center blank part i like the color of the blank so didn't want to do anything that would take away from that.

    Tough finding those in good enough shape to redo. That's a nice job. What did you use on the blank?

    Hey Grant i used Bullards CPXtra to refinishing the rod blank. Its better than the old way i did them of of mixing up epoxy and after wet sanding it and then taking a micro fiber cloth i used to use my fingers and rub the epoxy back and forth till it burnt your fingers, then put it in a small tube standing strait to dry. Thanks to Saltys Dogs Video on youtube. I found a better way.

    Bill,

    on your video (CPxtra), appears that you are coating a brand new blank, is that correct?
    or is it a used blank without guides, reel seat and handles?

    do you think its a good idea to recoat a new blank (rainshadow for example) to make it more scratch proof or better leave it alone and build it as it comes from the factory?

    It's an old blank that was wet sanded. Not needed on a Rainshadow blank as their finish from the factory is good quality, I do sometimes coat a new Calstar blank with it though because they use shit Calif. compliant finish on their new blanks
