I like thin buildup on the threads, so I like the lite, or even spar varnish. Some people like the high build. To me, footballs belong on the gridiron, not on a flyrod.
But I have no problem with high build, but with the lite, I can get the number of coats on to my satisfaction. I'm not in a hurry to finish a rod.
Also remember with high build, it can be thinned down. Allpersonal preference. Either build, I like Threadmaster.
