Hi I've been lurking on the forum off and on for a few years.
Always managed to find an answer to any puzzles I had with regard to rod building so thanks to all who contribute.

I've been experimenting with transparent rod wraps on the two rods I've got on the go at the moment.

The new rod has snake guides and I've used 100 weight YLI 212 silk thread with spar varnish and I'm happy with how its come out.

The rebuild has lined Fuji guides and trying to get the 100 weight silk up the steep guides proved a real issue.

Can anyone suggest where I can get 50 weight silk thread? YLI 212 ideally but I'll give any make a go.
