Mike, I have found that most B James rods can be matched up with Gudebrod or FishHawk maroon nylon. It looks nothing like the correct colour until it is varnished. (No colour sealing required).
If an old original rod only needs a ring or two replacing then a good match is garnet. This is due to the old varnish yellowing and darkening the threads.

Wal.
