I read this statement in a thread about rod repair costs and I don't understand what it means Can somebody explain this to me?

"Next learn how to pull three different colors out of every spool of nylon thread you use"

Thank you,

Steve

All I can imagine is that it refers to the different shades that can be obtained from any single color by the use of, or not, color preserver. It is also possible to change the shade by using a different diameter, or double over wrapping, etc.

I think he may be referring to the fact that in order to match the existing rod wrapping colors you need an
inventory of thread.

Toms got it right, in so much as every spool of nylon thread has two colors , with and with out color preserver. There is also the use of marking pens such as Sharpe to change the color a few shades to bring a thread in closer to match.

Hello All.

And don't forget the color you paint the blank under the thread wrap.


Tight Wraps & Tighter Lines.

O K, I get it now. And all of the comments are good examples to keep in mind. I recently struggled with a repair because the original wraps had discolored so bad that I couldn't match it at all. Looks like I had more resources than I realized, I never thought about using a Sharpe.

Good information, Thanks for the input.

Steve
