Moisture build up in guides

When production rods are not enough, it's time to go custom. Come share your experiences building and/or ordering a custom rod and tell us if you'll ever go back to off the shelf.

Moisture build up in guides

Post by igl00jx » Tue Aug 18, 2015 5:11 am

Purchased a used Super Destruction a couple weeks ago. Took it out for a night session this past Saturday on a humid night and noticed at home that there was moitsure buildup in the epoxy after the session. Wraps were great prior to that. Curious if there is any way to remove the cloudy look of the moisture build up as they still apear the same today.

put it in sun, it will dry out and not be cloudy

pretty common for epoxy to get cloudy during high humidity/rain conditions

What's the worry if you have good guides. Blanks should not succumb to moisture.
