I have a Sage 6100 that is older than many on this board. It is, however, a spectacular rod. I was looking at it the other day saying to myself that it looks faded, very used but not abused... and maybe a thin, minimal top coat of a t-h-i-n epoxy might make it more...presentable. Has anyone successfully done a thin top coat? If so, any suggestions, hints, advice, ideas or.... Seems like a really thin coat wouldn't be that hard to do and would retain all the rods characteristics. Opinions?

Some do it. I have seen some really nasty results, too. I would consider epoxy the last thing to use. It isn't very flexible. If it isn't worth much, go for it. I don't know where protection comes into consideration.

If it is old, respect is worth more than glitter.

Leave it alone. What you need, needs to expand and contract with the flex of the rod. Even if you could get a good coat applied, it would end up cracking. If the rod is that spectacular, let it be. It's called character.
Tight lines,
