What about multiple layers of Kevlar fly tying thread?

I'd advise against using masking tape bushings. Having had a reel seat fall off of a factory rod, with them, it's not an experience I care to repeat. The graphite bushings are nice. I've also heard of people using fiberglass drywall tape as a bushing.
