    Paint them white.
    I know that sounds like I'm making fun but I have not found an easier, simpler or more effective method...W

    Go to Michaels gift shop, or anyplace that sells airbrush paint,,You'll find some transparent neon paint in green, yellow, orange etc.. in small bottles..shake well, paint, seal with krlon plasticoat/ clear coat. You cannot see it until you hit the light, Then! that baby a take you back to the 70's:big_smile: Just kid den,,It will glow like you turned it on.

    You can simply put yellow line on your reel. It will glow like a Christmas tree!
