When you can do stuff like this you are a master craftsman.

this is done by Kris aka Halibutslayer on BD. *

The thread is Madera Polyneon there are 15 colors in this wrap and this stuff is smaller than size A.

I'm in awe of this dude.

nice color pattern, but the wrap is a simple desighn. but non the less, it is a very good craftsmans job.

Here are the last five I spun up this winter, realatively simple wraps albeit somewhat tedious for me due to A size thread and getting too old to see the stuff much less hang on to it ;D ;D ;D

This is one of those AFTCO lite rollers for 30# I thought it came out rather nice and some tip tops

I've rewrapped all my old stuff and built 5 or 6 new sticks this winter, built some 50-80# heavy gear for trolling or bottom fishing with the two piece handles and some lite and meidum bait/jig sticks.

I guess I wrapped 15-18 poles this winter so far and I still see 4 more blanks standing in the corner awaiting inspiration.

yes... you go up the blank, then come right back down. from the looks of it, he used a multi colored string. if not, i dont know how he did it, becouse you cant have a shaded in color unless you eather have a multi, or color it yourself. non the less, it looks awsome.

Simple design maybe, but it's not easy to do. Jan mentions 15 colors of thread smaller than size A. Where it looks like he used multicolor thread are strands that are only one color, he uses a different shade on each pass to get the multicolor look. Very clean and looks great.

Jan, good job on your rod wrapping.

Here is a link to the entire post with some very detailed and close up pictures.

With wraps like this making the really good ones look simple is the trick, you try one like this using a 15 color spread of Madera Poleyneon 40 and see how simple it is.

And while you are at it here is another "Simple" looking wrap done by a master wrapper.

This is called a "Tiger wrap" and trust me when I say it's anything but easy to do.

Scott is also a master of the craft.

never heard of a tiger rap, looks pretty cool. it looks like he double rapped it (such as wrapping over to get the desired pattern). but if you know how he wrapped it, i would like to know, want to try it on one of my rods.
P.S. i hope i didn't offend any of you when i said "simple", what i meant was that it is a simple design concept yes, but what he did to make it look like that was rather difficult. he is a good rapper, do you know how long he has been at it?

nice links..the finish is prime..those beautifull rods make me want to dust off my rod tools and quit my job.

After attempting to emulate Scott's Tiger Wrap about a dozen times I decided that quiting my day job wasn't a good idea. ;D ;D

The Tiger wrap is his signature wrap and a closely guarded trade secret. The first time I saw it I thought that's a great looking wrap and I looked at those pictures and thought (Foolishly) I can do that after finding a post he made telling someone exactly what materials he used.

The only problem is he doesn't tell how he used them and he also added that it's an application trick to get the moving Tiger eye optical effect.

I must have used up 30 bucks worth of thread and finish trying to figure it out.

Kris got some finish on his wraps and it's a beautiful finish job, I wish I could do as well.

You guys just getting started pay close attention, the finish is what makes or breaks the wrap job.
