Rick, you say you use high build for salt water rods for extra shock and strength. I was under the impression that the thread coating was just to keep the thread protected from the elements and to keep it from unravelling. Does the extra buildup (epoxy) on your saltwater really help? I've never flyfished salt or built a sw rod before.
