Hi ALL, sorry if this is wrong section to post this.

been on a few party boats and there are a lot of Terez and Travela S other Anglers use which I have a few as well. Same Color, mostly same Spec. I was thinking I have to do something to mine after another Angler mistakenly took mine when we were coming off the boat. So happen we both had our reels taken off when the boat is riding back. So it’s not his fault, after a long day, everyone just want to get to the truck and go home.

Thought about custom decal with MudHole but would like to hear what most of you do, thoughts?

There are many things you can do in this case. A custom decal is one idea. I do repairs for a local tackle shop and many guys will come in requesting a guide be rewrapped a bright alternate color to set the rod apart.

I've seen a lot of guys wrap different color electrical tape on their rods. Or a combination of different colors.

I just use these sticky dots . They may have be replaced once in awhile, but they are easy to identify and cheap .

nope, need to go with you or Cattle Boats
I write the customers name in big letters on some factory rods, since they all look the same. Ya can't miss the name, it's just above factory info and facing reel.....In the style of writing on these rods below. It's very obvious... Can't find any pics of the factory ones. I wrote their name on them, and gave them back
to the owners! no pics. Most any rod wrapper can do it for you,
or, make a decal of your name.

Personally, I'm not a fan of names on rods...in case I sell it no one wants the expense and hassle of removing it. Electrical tape of sticky dots work good.

    Which one do you have/like? Have you found silver or gold on clear tape, or just white/black on clear? Looked like some only have one or 2 fonts. Thanks!
    I think it's this one and has a million variations on tape color and size (well maybe not a million) Three size fonts on mine (probably an older version) and stretch/compress different fonts too. Easy to use.

    Have the same label maker and it is perfect for putting your id on fishing rods. The white background with black letters stands out nice.

    Yes that's true. If I'm gonna sell it, I'll offer to remove my name. Pretty easy, and offer to put the new owners name, unless they're a trader.. don't really want the rod for themselves, like some people on this site.
    Sticky dots and tape are easily removed. by evil thieves!!
