X2 on the Ricon. I finally spent the money on the Ricon as well as a set of NOVA chucks. One of the best purchases I have made in building rods. Makes turning grips a breeze. Good luck on your search. Pat Barnard

Try using the smallest rubber tubing cut in small lengths, tried it and have never went back to tape. Wrap up to the band, slice with razor blade and your done. No residual. Pat Barnard

$28.95 is money well spent for a high quality magazine. Great tips and How to's. A must for any rodbuilder. Pat Barnard

In a recent Rodmaker it showed the steps to make a butt grip using cork as the body and a yellow foam practice golf ball cut in half as the cap. Very innovative and it will give you the color you are looking for. Pat

I know the feeling. I guess I am to anal. I have done several rods without trimming and got the edge on the top and bottom of the decal, even after applying a coat of finish first. But once you trim the excess the edges are virtually invisible. Hope it works for you. Pat

Never used the scotch tape. The transfer tape is thicker and easier to handle and can be used multiple times. The type I have has grid lines to aid in precise placement. The low tack feature is a plus as well. Pat

After much trial and error this is the method I use to virtually eliminate the visible edges on a decal used for Custom fishing rods using the PEARLabel 270 & 360 printers. If you need additional information just let me know. 1. Print decal. Using scissors trim as close as possible to the letters/object. Very sharp scissors are a must to ensure a clean precise cut. The goal is to remove a

Greetings, Can anyone who has experience with Pro Kote finish give their opinion? What have you noticed in reference to ease of use, yellowing, pot life, application of heat, etc, etc. Also the same for the Pro Paste. I have tried to get the company to reply but had no luck. I will take emails if needed. Thanks for your time. Pat Barnard

Use a Nail knot. I make my bands using metallic 3 turns. Make the nail knot, cinch the thread tight, drop a small amount of CP on band. After ~ 10 minutes trim ends. Pat Barnard

Agree with Dave. I have the 270 I purchased at the show, this printer can do everything. Not just labels for rods but other items as well. You can definitely see the edges. If you can get a picture of a logo, you can make a decal on the spot, I have made several rods with logos and this maker worked great. I guess I will just live with the edges. Still experimenting....if and when I elimina
