can I wrap guides with polyneon?
have some from a dec wrap that I would like to use cause it is the right color.
Rod has double foot guides so there would be lots of thread.
Thanks, Robert

If you have the polyneon from Madeira, yes. You might want to do some test wraps with and without CP. Lots of nice colors.

Would steer away from going no cp. I've heard bad things about the way it treats finish. And I've used permagloss on it and found the results substandard. I have wrapped guides on a rod for my daughter and got good results with using cp though.
