tight-lines You can try to remove the epoxy by heating it. A hair dryier works well a hardwood stick ( oak walnut) with an edge on it can be used to scrape the epxoy off and won't scratch the blank. It's not easy and if you over heat the rod you will comprimise it's integrity. Also works better on rods with a glossy finish vs. a sanded blank. NOT for the faint of heart!
If your epoxy is smooth and even or you really like the rod you might want to consider the overwraps.
good luck

teflon_jones If it's under the epoxy there's no way to remove it without compromising the strength/durability of the rod. You'll need to cover over it.

JimW If it's got epoxy over it consider putting a butt wrap over it. I wouldn't mess with removing the epoxy but there may be a way to go about it without damaging the rod.
