Thanks William. I wish I could capture the colors better. I used Pro Wrap thread. The main wrap is a dark blue nylon which blended in with the blank pretty well, just enough contrast. We chose to not use any metallics since there is no silver anywhere on the rod and I just don't like gold. Inspired by some of Pete's rods, I went with a light blue for the trim; made tipping wraps at the guides and did a spiral wrap with the light and dark blues at each ferrule and down at the base of the grip - which do not show up in the pics.
