Title: Simple Reel Wraps... many for cheap...
Post by: coolasice on Dec 15, 2021, 12:40 AM
So I tried using the cheap cable wraps from harbor freight last year... they work, but were a pain to try to get on and very thin....   so I found an alternative that was only a few dollars more and could be customized to any length...

I found some hook and loop wire multipurpose wrap at harbor freight... and a set of grommet pliers....   cut to any length and install a grommet... perfect...  and under $12...

Been using black hockey tape for years. One roll will do tons of combos. Itís super strong and doesnít impede from any sensitivity of the rod or grip.

I just use velcro wraps, easy peasy.
