Usually apply a couple of coats of straight Spar over the wraps with a bodkin, until the threads start to smooth out. Then enough coats of thinned Spar varnish until the wraps are completely smooth. Both of these rods have about 6 coats on them.

That is wicked! I have a dip tank set up and everything but I tried a poured finish on a Banty I built and was really pleased the finish. I didn't wrap the guides on it yet at that time but I think I might try it on the next one. Thanks
