Default Decorative Wrap Contest Voting

I submitted a wrap for this contest, I know I won't win and I don't expect any votes.....but if you have time, check it out and shoot an email off for a vote.

God I hate wraps.

Yours look as good as anyones IMO. They are nice looking, just on a walking stick or a golf club or a spatula or something. No need to ham up a good piece of graphite.

Just my 2.

Ummm, wraps hold the guides on. What's wrong with a little art?

Rod wraps are tight, they increase the catch rate for sure! Need one some day.

Yeah, ya got me man. I guess I will tear up my membership to the DAM.

Yes, you must wrap the guides on. But interlocking chevrons and other elaborate multi-thread weaves do what paint does on a rod. Decrease sensitivity by adding weight. If it was made to go over the mantle, that is one thing.

Decorative wraps will always have a place, on fiberglass tuna rods. Sensitivity not such an issue there.

Or fiberglass catfish rods, and heavy fiberglass swimbait rods
