after the last few months of having the most lil problems with fish eyes in the first and second coat of aftcote on over wraps.its never in the madera thread but sometimes in the ncp thread. mostly in the first few guides closest ti the butt. i figured it out today it must be that ive been using both madera and ncp for a number of rods all summer the silicone on the madera must be chross contamitaing the ncp thread. to the point i have to scrub the finish with laqure thinner to get rid of the fish eye they are real small but i know they are there. it was only in the first 2 or 3 guids was making me going to wash off the thread cart and see if it was it or not but it makes sence right?

Nice detective work!


I can feel your pain. That kind of stuff drives one NUTS!!!

Have realized for a long time what could be accomplished using Maderia. After experiencing problems between that thread and finish I walked away. Then add color sealer/preserver to the mix, ugh, disaster potentials.

For builders with patience and perserverance the results are fantastic.

Take care.
