Default Rod wrapping

Did this the other day. I'm thinking a small black trim band between the green and silver would look better.

Make sure you do not wrap those rods to tight or the rod will snap in half the first time you get a good fish on... I learned this the hard way the first week of working in a rod and reel shop and was NOT told about this by my uncle. Needless to say the first set of rods came back because of this :-)

I think black would be too muted, maybe a bright blue or red would be a better choice to define the break between silver and green

Considering the acrylic seats and grips some. I am concerned about the grips getting slimy when trout fishing though,



Looks great
