Have any of you guys had problems with white thread before???? I have built over 300 rods but believe it or not I have never used white thread. I’m double wrapping this white thread (I have a reason for doing this) and I having a hard time getting the 2nd layer to lie flat, what I’m doing wrong… I’m using HT thread and I have never had a problem with this thread before, what’s your take on this????

I had an issue with "D" HT a few years back when I didn't get the thread packed tight enough on the first wrap. I got tired of messing with it and applied a coat of CP which solved the prolem.

Well I got things worked out last night but believe this or not I went to Joann Fabrics and picked up some different thread and I got it to work. I like using the HT thread and have not had a problem with it but for some reason I just could not get this white to work for me but the rod is done and will make deliver on it tomorrow at the Wish-A-Fish. Thanks

Thank you so much for that web site, you can't beat the prices they offer and I'm going to order some right now. 1000 yrds. for $11.00 that is great. :thumbup:

Steve, you might want to buy a small spool and try it before you are in a time crunch. A large majority of the embroidery threads are made over seas, and not with rodbuilding in mind. Some of them are imprednated with silicone to give them a "brilliant sheen" like advertised on the site. I dont know that they are, but I have bought gold metallic and it has been fine, bought silver from same company and more fish eyes than a gutting station.!!!!!!!!

Good luck. Keep us posted as I am always looking to lower the bottom line!
