I agree... I know Solomon loves plain, and I others like fancy... Myself, I like performance, with just a touch of flare....Koldkut has made me three rods with great handles that have pretty modest wraps, but they do have a band in em.... I love em.

Bottom line, it's for you man!

Re: Advice

Good points, I think I will keep the complex wraps limited to the first couple guides, it gets much harder to wrap and harder to see after the first couple guides on the size rods I do most anyway. Thanks everyone.

Re: Advice

Agreed. Simple. Never caught a fish that cared much about the wraps on the guides of the rod.

Oh ya, the last three guides will be single foot micro's.

You and my buddy mackaddict do some really pretty work! I think the term is "mad skillz".

Re: Advice

As much as I can lay down some nice wraps, I keep mine simple, my best rods are all solid color wraps, the others have all been sold.

I admire the skill and patience it takes to do that intricate wrapping, but it's not my cup of tea. I'm a fan of simple and clean. To each his own.

Re: Advice

Just my 2, but I think understated, almost austere aesthetic underscores the purpose of any tool very well. To that end I would personally keep the elaborate wraps to a minimum. If you feel like the rod will look better with a crazy wrap or two, keep them limited to the first and second guide.

Tacky.
