color match for immortal

Hello All,
I have a few immortal blanks to build on and was wondering what color thread would match the TC color of the blank. Either using CP or not, actually suggestions for both ways would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
TJ

Prowrap 813 Silver Shiner is what I’ve been told to try. i have a spool, but have not yet had a chance to try it. On the spool, it looks very close. Alps has some TC finished guides which match the blanks nicely.

I have built quite a few rods on the immortal blanks and I have found that both my clients as well as myself would rather have the guides wrapped in black with an appropriate contrasting metallic trim color.

But, a rod can be wrapped with any color as you know. Choose what suits you.

Take care

Gary,
Thanks for the reply, that is actually a color I was considering , as well as prowrap equivalent to Gudebrod 720 (recommend by Kerry Batson) will try both of them. Roger , yep black is always a good look and almost always what I use for the guide wraps, thanks for the input.
