    I have not had a problem with the paint wearing off. There really is not much wear on these spots. You could apply a coating of epoxy over them, but I have not found it necessary.

    I have this same rod and it is my favorite 7 wt. It is very powerful without being too stiff. It also has a reputation of being difficult to break.

    Great rod!
