    I am looking to build my first rod soon and looking at the various wrappers, has anyone used the hand wrapper from mudhole.com (not the cardboard version)? how are they compared to some of the wooden ones? Thanks!!

    Don't know about the Mudhole. I like my Sully Wrapper the best, and use the PacBay handwrapper a bit as well. Batson's hand wrapper is ok, but it's to small for most of what I build. Sully's is more expensive, and worth it for the ability to back up a wrap and maintain tension.

    I've done 5 or 6 rods on the mudhole hand wrapper. Seems to work ok, but it's the only one I've used so I can't compare it to anything.

    The Sully looks nice, the ability to pause/ back up a maintain tension seems like it might come in handy, especially with kids!

    havent used one ,but i would have got a sully if i had to do it over again.you can order one from Anglers Workshop or look at pictures and try to build one.your going to need a rod dryer also makes things easier.

    I just made a 1x3 seeker rail rod on one...... easy considering this was my first build... I can see why most build with a power wrapper though.

    My first wrapper was the model sold by FlexCoat.....it worked very well until I outgrew it and it wore out a bit. then I just went and stripped it down and made a bigger better version with a $20.00 investment at Home depot. A year or two later I added a motor on it's own base and can power wrap large underwraps or hand wrap.

    I just bought this head from Mudhole....mounted it on a base the same thickness as the supports on the wrapper and instant portable, stowable power wrapper
