Personal Opinion: That Mudhole wrapper looks like a PITA to wrap tips and first guides on. I would look or make one that gets the thread closer to the tip without a ton of overhang. That and you might want to make some additional rests to support the blank sections when you have quite a bit of overhang. Just a thought. Not the best picture of my wrapper, but hopefully the visual will clear up my babbling:

petee:

I see what you mean. I remember that picture from your thread on your rod building shack. Pretty impressive.

I am now leaning towards the Eco-Wrapper which has gotten great reviews.

IMHO make your own....a bit of 1X and after you are done you will have much better overview as to what is going on...

wrap a few guides dry for starters...there is no offense at untying and re tying...

the same jig you use to help wrap will also be a valuable tool in spinning on some finish or epoxy...also make some extra stands for longer spins...especially for the epoxy process if you go that route...
