there is a way to get thead to stay the same color, but it's a little bit of work. you can mark where the guide feet will be on the rod. then you can paint where the guide feet will lay with white paint. i'm not sure which paint is best, but i hear it works really well. as i've never tried it, i cant say from personal experience how well it actually works. the blank color is what causes the thread to change. color preserver makes for a bit of a weaker bond to the rod as it keeps the epoxy from soaking through to grab and bond the thread and guides to the blank. it's still plenty strong for inshore type rods. color preserver was initially designed for offshore wraps. there is so much epoxy on that type of rod, that it doesn't really matter if it soaks through to the blank. just my 2 cents...
