Prowrap Electra Metallic Thread

Recommended Posts

I just received the latest Mud Hole catalog and am considering using this thread for guide wrapping. Has anyone tried it? I've used metallic thread on casting rod guides in the past, but never on a spinning rod as I didn't trust it for that application.  The wife loves bling and using a purple, metallic thread would really make the wraps pop.

All the metallic that we wrap rods with are more than strong enough for the job. The holding power is thread break strength times the amount of wraps on the guide. I don't see how it would matter what kind of guide you wrap it with, single foot spinning guides have longer, stronger feet that a casting guide.

When we were testing rods to failure years ago a MH bass rod never exceeded 3.2 lbs of guide tension on any rod tested before failure.
