Needs to fish more..
Just finished building my 1st rod last night from a Cabela's kit. However, I have 1 question after putting the finish on the wraps how long does it take for it to dry? I did the rotate the rod every 15 minutes a 1/2 turn for 2 hrs (actually i did that for almost 3) and the finish is somewhat bulging on 1 side of one section and a bit tacky to the touch this morning. I think maybe i used too much finish. Since this is my first rod i don't expect perfection but will it dry and harden??? is this OK??? Thanks for the help
