Downrigger wrap choice new
      #411448 - 02/21/11 06:51 PM

Greetings...I would like some info.... What would be the best choice for a salmon rod wrapping...a regular straight wrap? or an Acid or Spiral wrap , when using it on a Salmon Downrigger? I would prefer a glass rod about 9'or better. Thanks, all answers are appreciated, Steve

I'd wrap it straight. Spiral wrap does take the tork out of the rod, but I don't believe its necessary unless your going after big game! Load it with guides! Good luck.

either way works, but i like to spiral wrap my downrigger rods. if you go with the spiral wrap, add at least 2 extra guides than what you would normally use.

Adamh...Chris,
I thank you... I will give spiral a try. I expect to use a Batson rod. Spriral guides seems to be the way to go nowadays. I saw one that was made at Utmost in Sequim Wa. and thought it was really nice. My hands and wrists are very bad and I think any reduction of the torquing will work well for me. Thanks again
