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?
