    Is it possible to take off the logos on graphite rod blanks to add a decorative thread wrapping or will I just have to make a closed wrapping?

    Monk, chances are the logo is sitting under some epoxy, right? You're going to have to either remove that (not an easy task) or wrap your thread over it and recoat the wraps.

    Somewhat similar question for you rod builders....I bought a 'demo' rod years ago that has the flyshop's logo on it and I'd love to get rid of it. It sits right above the cork and I'm wondering how easy it is to get rid of it. Rod is a Sage XP.

    Rick - I think I pinged you on this a year ago but never did anything as I'm afraid to screw the rod up.

    thx all ----

    to answer both questions - a closed wrap would seem your best/easiest option to make the changes you are talking about.

    Oneweight - since the logo is close to the cork, you should be able to wrap over & epoxy. That's a fairly straighfoward process. :) Go for it! A two color wrap is really pretty easy, and it would look great.

    Monk - closed wraps would definitely be the easiest unless you are comfortable removing existing epoxy. You can do some great closed-wrap designs - adding feather inlays (above or over) the wraps is not difficult either if you are going for a distinctive look.

    I did have a really sweet open wrap pattern that I had all layed out, but I guess I will have to nodify it a bit. Shame, because it would have looked so damn nice.. :confused:

    You'll just have to build another rod to use your pattern! :thumb: :thumb:

    Haha! :rofl: I was cruising for that response, huh!?

    seriously - send a pic when complete - I'm curious to see how your final design turns out.

    Will do. It will be my first graphite with deco wraps. We'll see how it turns out.
