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?
