Thread Selection

When ordering your rod, the dominant color is the thread over the guide feet (shown in neon yellow below) and the complimentary color is the thread under the guide (shown in blue below).

With Vapor Trails, the first guide is the only double foot guide and therefore will have the complimentary color. The remaining are single foot guides and will only have the dominant color along with the other colors for trims.

Metallics are best when used as a complimentary color choice and is not an option as a primary color.

Standard Decorative Wraps

Below are some examples of standard decorative wraps. Nick creates his wraps based on the color choices and what works well with those choices, but will work with any preference you have to create your custom rod.

Closed Decorative Wraps

A closed wrap is all thread work in butt wrap with no blank showing.

Closed Wraps are an additional charge of $125
