I really like the "fade" idea you've done. Seems like it might be harder on a "small" 9' rod where none of the wraps are very long. I'm gonna do some practice wraps tonight and see what I can come up with.

Maybe that's why I've never seen or heard of anyone using a router!
But it is variable speed, and you can turn it on then slow it down and it stays there, unlike an old variable speed drill that you have to gerry-rig the speed with a zip tie over the trigger.
We'll see, I'll be careful when setting it up. Thanks for the warning.
