Very nice looking weave pattern. My patience does not allow that kind of work in my shop.

Mahalos guys...Yes I am 780 lbs and 10 ft tall, my pool set is custom-made using bowling balls... Cheesy


Picked it up for $2 at the local goodwill...Thought it might make a nice mini-work table with plastic cups in the pockets to hold parts, but the sides kept getting in the way, so now it's now used as a backdrop for photos..

I work at a much slower pace than most and rotate between 2-3 rods working a little on each at a time...Seems to help with my patience issues...Then again I only wrap as a hobby and don't have to deal w/the pressure of time constraints, paperwork, etc that come with running a business...The above wrap took nearly 6 months, carpet tape to lock the threads in place and plastic dust covers come in handy..

Beautiful Chad.  I love your mix of decorative butt wraps on one rod.

What kind of guides are you going to install?  Ti Hilo guides?

Cheesy I talk with every part I send out and each reel I repair so that they perform at the top of their game. Cheesy

Thanks for the kind words Brian..
I'll probably go with plain old Fuji BMNAG Alconites.
Tried saving up for titanium once, but ended up purchasing reels instead.. Cheesy

I bought my first Titanium set yesterday and I said I never would. Going on a really cool red Hercules spinner soon.

I've looked closer, and am wowed even more! How do you get the spiral wrap with the alternating light and dark squares? That is amazing! I'd love to know how you did that....
