Chad: Thank you very much for the information you furnished me with, that is very helpful. I am a person that needs to read something to get it straight rather then told  and I can use that information to reference over and over again. I am going to follow your advice.

By the way I couldn't help noticing the black cat you are holding in you arms. We had a black cat named Black Jack. He was a wonderful cat.

Chad: I bought both books you suggest from Amazon.

2. Advanced Custom Rod Building (If you only had time for one Clemens book, this would be it imho)
3. Custom Rod Thread Art (This is the book that contains the "spider" pattern I posted

Thanks again;

Joe,

You did good...Those two books alone are a vast source of information and how-to's, not just for crosswraps, but on rodbuilding in general..

"Midnight" is the name of the black cat in my profile photo...He is actually my wife's cat since she took care of him since he was a kitten...We also have another cat, part sailpoint siamese, who is great friends with Midnight...His name is "Snowshoes" aka Mr. Rod Blank Inspector...Wink

Cats are cool! Grin Looks like I'm going to be doing lots of reading before I start this new rod.

I have the same 2 books, and am only half way though the first.  Been too busy reading up on antique fishing reels.

I'm hoping that I can study enough to start this new blank, but it's tax time and get distracted with tax crap.....can I say crap? Wink Grin

Too Late, Joe. Grin
I wish you guys the best on your endeavors of rod building and wraps.
Looks like Chad has it down pat.
I will not venture into this unknown, because if I know if I do, I will go crazy with it. Wink

You will be there when you have 50 blanks lined up on one wall of your office and you buy finish epoxy by the gallon. Grin

Joe, You're welcome... I'm glad you received your book and found the information useful.

Update on the Rainshadow, rear grip and epoxy ramp for the stainless butt cap have been wrapped and finished...Very happy with the grips...Lately I have been experimenting with a top-coat of marine epoxy for a non-slip grip even when wet, (a similar process is used on carbon fiber grips)...Time will tell how it holds up..
