I,m fixing to build a white rod and don't want to use regular epoxy because it yellows. I bought some Thread master One but I have never used it.
If any of you have experience with it I would greatly appreciate any tips or recommendations you might have to offer. Thanks Don

Like Herb, I've built a couple rods on "white" blanks as well as "clear white" fiberglass, used Threadmaster Lite on all of them, so far, no yellowing. The ones that own the painted white blanks, they will message me now and then saying the epoxy is still glass clear.

I have a couple of clear glass fly rods as personal builds, no yellowing on them either, and they are out on the water a lot.
