Neil's correct.

Historicly, I've pulled the same stunt and Neil's 'how-to' was my fix. Just go very easy with the razor blade and have it as flat to the rod as you can get to save on scratching the blank.

nbrandon I think you can wait till it dries, and then carefully slice through the flex coat and the thread with a razor blade. Peel the bad junk off, clean the guide up and start over.

Big Problem / hopefully an easy fix

Finally got around to putting the Flex Coat on my Spey Rod that I have been working on and off on for about a year. Needless to say things went bad in a hurry!! The flex coat started to thicken uo in just 10 minutes!!!!! ?????????? Never had this happen before. Needless to say 3 guides came out like $%#!. Trying to feverishly heat the flex coat to get it to flow again proved fruitless and wound up actually burning the and bubbling the flex coat.

My question being can the rod be salvaged? or is it destined to be a Tomato plant stake?

Someone please help!
