I've built many UL - ML rods using only Metallic Thread. I love the look and have not had any problem with any of the poles I use or built for friends. As a matter of fact last fall I landed a 42" Muskie on a 6'6" UL - 6 lbs test with no problem. I never horse them but let them run and reel em back

I have another questions this time about Pro Wrap Color Fast Thread. I guess what I am wondering as a new builder what are the thoughts on the color fast thread compared to nylon thread that you have to use color preserver. I have already invested in the color fast thread and just finished a rod. It look good but does anyone know the long term look without using color preserver? Thanks Rick

I am new to the rod building business and would like any feed back on Pac Bay Tradition ll and Arctos rod blanks. I have been building St Croix blanks but with them discontinuing selling them I would like to know about Pac Bay blanks. I have used nothing but Pac Bay SV Zirconia guides so far and thought about giving the blanks a go. But would like a little feed back on them if possible.
