anyone out there every use poly?  I am new to building and what limited experience I have has been with nylon only.  I was snooping around everyone's favorite auction site and came across some bulk spools that seem pretty cheap.  Any feedback is great.  Thanks!

poly works great for decoration but and i've only been told this, never tried it, is that polyester has too much stretch to hold guides on.

It doesn't stretch so much as it can lose it's stretch or tension when soaked with epoxy. It has been used and some have no problems for the times I have used it just as trim I didn't like it at all. Nylon thread rules the day when it come to rod building but even that now has it's issues depending on brand.
