Gets the job done
Reviewer: A viewer from Gilbert, AZ US
I purchased this wrapper in a rod building materials kit. Ive used it to build 2 rods so far and have had no issues with it whatsoever. It would be nice if it came with a third up right stand however.
Good but not durable
Reviewer: A viewer from Rockford, IL US
The Pac Bay Hand Rod Wrapper is quite user friendly and the thread-tensioning set up is very reliable and infinately adjustable. The materials of construction are the weak point. The base board with the drilled holes is made of some kind of particle-board material with a woodlike veneer. The metal pegs in the bases of the upright v-blocks are simply rounding out the holes in the much softer base board. With each new rod project the wobble gets more pronounced and the blank support less stable. If you only build a rod or two per year, you may not see this for years to come. I average three a month. If Pac Bay offered this unit with a real hardwood base or perhaps with corresponding metal collars in the base holes it would be more durable. I like the unit but it has just worn out too quickly...
Great for the price
Reviewer: A viewer from Greensboro, NC US
As my fellow reviewer has stated, the wrapper unit is made of particle wood. I would however, say that it really is not bad quality. I will say though, that I was surprised to see the rod holding upright, is lined with soft Velcro. All things considers for the price, you cannot find a better quality unit.
My friends like what the new wrapper can do

When UPS delivered the wrapper I opened the box quickly. I hadn't used one like this before so I was a little nervous. The wrapper holds the blank stable and the tension is easy to adjust whether you use a book or a tension device. The sliding eyelet in front lets you move the thread to the right position with ease. To say the least it works and doesn't cost a great deal.
