Trim Bands Cheat?

Rate this topic

2 posts in this topic

I have a rod I'm going to be redoing, or at least maybe mimicking the existing wraps. I can't find the name of this metal tape?!

Is it just aluminum tape? Is it not recommended? Will a large "trim band" underneath work the same way?


In the pictures I am talking about the shiny silver stuff underneath the thread. I have confirmed it isn't supertight trim bands but actual material like aluminum tape but way flimsier. 


Thank you in advance!

You can use silver sticker vinyl without issue.  I frequently use a cricut vinyl cutter to make names, fish etc... on tons of rods.  Be sure to gently wipe down with DNA prior to applying finish.
