Rod repair

I have found a new product to me anyway called Rod Wrap a tape to bring new life and improve rod handles. The one main problem I have found is that large rod handles tend to attract fish hooks and when as we do in the Florida Keys use large hooks up to 22/0 they do leave their mark on handles. This tape sticks to its self and gives a slightly tacky feel even when wet and seems to be lasting very well with our big fish abuse. I am not sure if anyone sells it in the UK I do know that Bass Pro stock it and as many of you know they will mail order to the UK no problem. Certainly it is a lot easier to use this tape than rebuild a cork handle and by using a big overlap you end up with a larger diameter handle. Neat stuff or what just what the Americans are good at making stuff we need.
