Stupid power wrapper question

19 June 2014 - 10:30 PM

I got a batson power wrapper not to long ago, and am struggling to switch the o-ring from wrap to dry? I know it is a stupid question, but i can't figure it out. Thanks

Epoxy Questions

Will any two part epoxy work for grips and real seats? I have some and don't want to buy more. I know some brands make it specifically for rod building but will any epoxy work?

Eva vs. Hypalon

03 February 2014 - 12:16 AM

I've built a rod with hypalon and have a few questions with eva.

1. Is eva easier to sand down then hypalon? (I've built using hypalon and seemed to struggle a bit)

2. Do you need a lathe to sand down eva, also does anything work better than sand paper?

3. When to use hypalon vs. Eva?


First build questions

09 November 2013 - 02:59 PM

About to build my first rod and have some questions before i continue. A few details, i plan on it being a 8 foot rod for calico bass (a more aggressive saltwater cousin of a largemouth) all the guides are going to be double footed as well.

1. Do the guides need under wraps?

2. I plan on doing size 20 then 16 then 12 then 10 then 8, 5 times. Does this sound about right?

3. Does this rod sound to ambitious and should it try something smaller for my first build?

This is one is more for just building in general if i do an eva foam split grip, would i still install it as a if it was a one piece eva foam grip?
