I'm so friggin' mad right now, spent all this time wrapping this rod, burnishing and making sure all my wraps were nice and tight. Rod looked great to me. Went and applied color lock because I just love how that glistening nylon thread turns out when color lock is applied. So I applied two coats, more than enough for size A thread. I made sure that thread was soaked! Everything looked right, all the thread turned dark like it should when you know it's wet. Then, after the color lock soaks in and dries they thread is back to it's shiny self, maybe a tad darker than before but not too bad. So I'm all excited for how this rod will turn out once the epoxy is applied. So after I get home from work today I set up, mix up some epoxy and go to town, everything looking good so far, it's laying down real nice, I remove the excess and go over all if it once more to see if I missed anything... and suddenly I see that which I hate to see, you know, that one spot of blotchiness on those wraps, that one spot where you know the epoxy somehow bypassed the color lock and got into the thread.... FAAAAAACK now what? All the other spots looks great, looking just like I expected it to but this one section has that blotch on the bottom, near the feet of one of the guides... WTF!!! So mad...so much time spent trying to get it right, even re-wrapped some trim wraps I did not like... and now here we are...blotchiness showing on my thread!!! Why don't they make CP'ed thread that has a nice glisten to it like the nylon does and doesn't have that flat dull look to it... I need a punching bag!!!!!!!
