Default Re: Worth while to salvage on old, decent blank as a first project?

Not sure what kind of rod it is, other than old and nothing special. Phone number on the rod sack means I was using it prior to '94. I think I remember having a Pflueger or a Fennwick back then, but my memory for stuff like that is not so great.

What's kept me away form rod building in the past are all the finicky, nit-picky details/options. I barely know enough to ask an intelligent question on the subject.

I am assuming that more wraps of a lighter thread is stronger over all, but that the 'A' nylon is more than sufficient and just less smooth in appearance.

Is there a better coating to use?

Better Question: Given a generic graphite rod, getting a new seat and guides, what would you use?
