    This is for the tackle store and is an "economy" custom rod. MHX Power Tip blank, 7 foot, rated 20-40 pound line. The graphics are the same product that I used on the American Flag rod a month or so ago. Nobody ventured a guess then about what I used and I'm not telling until someone does.

    Nice clean work Bill. I like your wrap on the hosel too.

    Rodskinz or Jigskinz from American Tackle? Although those are just now (I think) hitting the market. Perhaps they sent you some in advance of their market release as a promo thing...

    Good guesses guys, but they're all wrong.

    Chuck, the RodSkinz have been around for awhile. I think the stuff from Am-Tac is called RodWraps.

    OK, looks like there's no more guesses, so the answer is:

    DUCT TAPE!

    There's always another use for the stuff.

    On the flames rod here, I cut the flames from the strip and applied to the rod and then tinted some thread finish black to blend everything together and hide the edges of the tape.

    On the flag rod, it was just wrapped around the blank.

    The first time I tried this was last year, when I made about 8 rods to give away to local kids. One of them was a Bat Man fan.

    Fun way to easily decorate a fishing rod. And there's lots of different designs to play with.

    I have used NFL and MLB Logo decals from the vinyl eye-black things girls will wear to a football game....college too. I have also used batman logos which were sold as fingernail decals. There is tons of stuff out there like that. Just coat them with CP as a test before applying them to a rod to be sure they don't run.
