As flytyer points out, my reasons for not using color preserver are purely aesthetic; I like to see the guide feet showing through the wraps, it's a neat look.
Nate - I believe that you're right about the added degree of durability that CP gives the wraps, but I tend to take extremely good care of my fly rods and don't think that wrap durability is a factor in light of that.
I'm going to try the Perma Gloss this time, and of course will be using my "lab stopper" rod chucks! I'll post a few pics as I progress...
