finish on rod blanks

Is there any functional [versus decorative] benefit to be had from overcoating a rod blank with paint, varnish, epoxy, or some other finish?

Just adds weight - especially in tip area - That's whay all my personal fly rods are raw carbon or raw glass. Also easier to change position or replace guides. No worry about finish.
That being said - some blanks are so heavy that weight means nothing. But changing guides the same.
