:wink: OK., Guy's Here's the cordage handle rod how-to steps. First off materials list....scissors, indoor outdoor double-stick carpet tape, #9 braided nylon tie-loop. http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/ll75/LipRippers/100_0393.jpg Step #2 Apply carpet tape to rod. works best run paralell with rod.Start at butt cap & run up to reel seat. http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/ll75/LipRippers/100_0395.jpg http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/ll75/LipRippers/100_0394.jpg Step#3 Pell off backing, an excacto knife helps with this part. http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/ll75/LipRippers/100_0396.jpg http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/ll75/LipRippers/100_0399.jpg Add a short piece of tape around the cap end to help from pulling up the tape when you tie-off. Step #4 Starting the wrap. http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/ll75/LipRippers/100_0402.jpg Step#5 Running it on & tie-off. http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/ll75/LipRippers/100_0403.jpg http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/ll75/LipRippers/100_0404.jpg Step#5 trim tag end & smooth out if needed. http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/ll75/LipRippers/100_0405.jpg Trim off tag end & use something like a rolling pin to run up & down the handle to smooth out the coils if needed. This type handle works best on 3/4" up to 1 1/4" diameter handles wet or dry, hot or cold all day gripping comfort, if you want to repel slime / bait goo & such just treat with a waterproof spray such as Scotch Guard. When it gets narrly just strip & re-wrap a new one! *Tip...If using paracord pull out the inner core & trim off say 10" then pull it back out, this helps to start-tie-off your wrap & keep the knots from bulging. Hope this helps everyone out.
