Fake looking wraps!

So I just completed a rod with my first diamond type wrap and single wrap guides in garnet on a black sanded Batson RX7 blank. I have seen and read many posts referring to customers asking about tape, shrink wrap, or stickers etc. because the wraps are so good. I was amazed at how solid your wraps look. Well I just produced such wraps on my 5th build. My wraps have been getting better with each rod. This one is the bomb! I wanted to thank all of you for the patience and guidance and all of the other good resources here. The diamond wrap came out very well also considering it is my first. I only had to destroy 2 diamond wraps before I got it right. I will try posting to the pics page when I figure it out.

Fishing is not a sport, it is an art.

I used to make and sell custom wood arrows for traditional archery. All my work was done with paint and stain. When someone asked me what vinyl wraps I used... I stood a little straighter.
