>> Fixing up marred surface finish on a graphite pole [topic: previous/next]

So when my 15' Eliminator arrived I discovered the post office had been kind enough to bang it around in its box, and it has surface level scratches in the finish. Plus, the rod holder I was using last week added a few of its own. Nothing deep, primarily cosmetic, but still.....

What's the best way to re-cover those scratches? The Eliminator is about to become surf only so that solves the rod holder issue....plus, I'm about to pad the rod holder anyways to prevent future issues.

Know this is an old post and you've probably fixed the scratches already. However, if you haven't, a quick and dirty way to fix the scratches is just use some clear nail polish. Add a little acetone to thin it out and apply a thin layer over the scratches. Now if you're a perfectionist like me and have access to a power rod wrapper, then you could just apply a thin coat of rod finish lacquer and rotate for a few hours (or overnight). If bubbles pop up, use a heat gun to pop them as they appear.

Sorry if this was too little too late.
