Okay, I've been experimenting with an Angler's Workshop Brand NCP thread for a while now and no matter how tight I pack and burnish the wraps, I still end up having to put preservative on them to maintain color. Even then, the preservative doesn't do its job (flexcoat). So, heres my questions for y'all: Have you had success with NCP thread? Does the brand you buy really hold its color after the finish is applied? I'm working with a bright purple right now and its been a nightmare trying to preserve the color.
