Spiral wraps for the surf?

Rate this topic

2 posts in this topic

Al, have you or anyone you know experimented with this? After reading Tim's post on using 11 guides on a conventional, I sent him a private message about trying a spiral wrap on his rod. His concern was with losing casting distance because of the line spiralling around the blank. I've only built one spiral wrapped rod, for Fluke, but casting is not optimal here.


I remember Don Morton saying that casting distance will actually improve using this method, but I cannot remember why. I did not want to tell Tim that distance will increase without actually experiencing it first hand, so I'm wondering if you've had any positive/negative experiences with spiral wrapping a rod for the surf.


Thank you, Billy
