Slip on but wraps..

Rate this topic

6 posts in this topic

Building my first rod and thought I might cheat a little... When I slide the wrap down the blank it un ravels real bad.. (kind of like a chinese finger thing) the fibers are also very fine.. I tried to singe it a bit, but not the answer.

Anyone ever try this product? Thanks.

Skip it, shortcuts to butt wraps always look like what they are.

 

Many fancy butt wraps aren't very difficult. I've done a couple and all they took was some time (few restarts and do-overs). If yer itchin' to go fishin' you can always save the wrap for the winter.

Find a copy of "Thread Art" or "Advanced Custom Rodbuilding" by Dale Clemens.

 

I don't know if Tom Kirkman's book has butt wraps in it, perhaps someone who owns it will chime in.

 

You might even do a search on this forum, I think Billy Shoebomber 40 might have written an article.

 

Good luck,

The Kirkman book had a good section on simple diamond butt wraps. It's the best illustrated (newest) book of the three. Advanced Custom.... is also a good book. Custom Thread Art will give the casual reader a headache but it's the authority in the field.
