Top Tips for a Newbie??

Post by Nztayls » Sat Nov 19, 2016 7:04 pm

So I have taken the plunge and purchased my first rod building kit (one of the Epic "ready to wrap kits") - and looking forward to getting into it. There is obviously a lot of information on here about rod building - but I would appreciate any top tips that anyone has. I have already ordered a hand-wrapper from the US (as I am heading across for work in a fortnight) - but anything else I should invest in?

Thanks in advance!

Take your time.

Have good light when wrapping.

Don't wrap too tight

Follow the booklet, its as good a guide as any.
