Well, my feeling is CP'd wraps are "strong enough" for all but the most severe abuse, but they are definitely not as strong as non-CP'd wraps. On my saltwater series rods I'm making now I'm not offering color preserved wraps as an option because I want the extra strength and adhesion, plus I'm using RECOIL saltwater guides which are more flexible than Snake's so they'll need the better bond.

This has been a very illuminating topic. It turns out that the clear urethane I have always used is OK but I haven't been putting on enough coats. But the information about Al's Silk Rite is very convincing and I ordered some which arrived yesterday after I already had a coat of urethane on my windings. Now, must continue with more coats of the same or can I switch to Al's for succeeding coats?

I've never tried it that way Skip. dunno.gif I'd expect it would work just fine but I can't say for certain.

Thanks

As far as I know you can only get it from Angler's Workshop in WA, USA.

Email me your mailing address Christian. I've got you covered. thumbsup.gif

AJ, don't you use about 5 or 6 coats of Al's on your wraps?

Not sure what AJ does, but that is exactly what I do - 5-6 coats.
