Tire silk medium-fine 50wt and heavier 30wt $0.00


Tire or YLI 50wt medium-fine silk (100m spools, 29 colours)

Tire 30wt medium-heavy silk (50m spools, 16 colours)

Premium Japanese multi-filament silk pefect for translucent guide wraps in a range of vibrant colours, plus raw undyed for translucent wraps (#374 Mikimoto).  A spool is sufficient for 1-2 rods

50wt silk is about the same diamater as standard 'A' nylon.  Compared to 100wt  and is a bit stronger and quicker to wrap with.  It is also easier to transition over guide feet whilst still giving a lower build wrap suitable for all rod weights.  

30wt silk is similar in diameter to 'C' nylon and suitable for heavier duty rods #8+.  Where we have the colour in both 30wt and 50wt you could also try 30wt on the butt section and stripping guides, and 50wt on the running guides for an easier build.

Listed separately we also sell Kimono very fine (100 wt) premium Japanese multi-filament 2-ply silk, pefect for barely-there low build translucent guide wraps.  100wt silk requires meticulous wrapping and is suitable for more experienced rod builders and lighter line weight rods.

Silk will go translucent and darken with application of epoxy or varnish.  Guide feet will be visible and the colour of the blank will show through lighter silk colours.  To retain the solid colour as it appears on the spool you will need to use colour preserver, or use colour-fast nylon instead.
