Clear coating only

I am looking for inshore blanks - 7’, fast action, medium and medium heavy power. I want the blanks just clear coated. I tried blanks from a company I usually buy this type blank but out of 7 - I could see the scrim line running up the blanks so I returned them.
Anyone have recommendations?

No idea what a "scrim line" is. Can you elaborate?

Sorry Tom - obviously I have my terms incorrect - it was used by the manufacturers customer service person.
I could see the edge of the fabric along the length of the blank.

In my opinion if you just want clearcoat, this is something you're just going to have to live with. Nature of the beast.

Having an end showing on a flag is just the nature of the beast, some more obvious than others, thin wall high modulus blanks just can't be finished/sanded as much as a lesser blank.

Jon,
Simply for my own information, is the “scrim line” axily (spell check is not helping me) straight with the blank or angled / spiraled along the blank? I appreciate your reply.

The line I see runs from the butt of the blank toward the tip - it doesn’t spiral around it
