I have built a lot of rods, most with snake guides. I have built 3 or 4 with single foots.None of those were fun! Sounds like a good idea, only half as many wraps.I have never found a good way to temporarily hold the darn things on for wrapping. I spend half my time crawling on the floor, hunting the last one that squirted off like a watermelon seed. Today I lost one, said the heck with it and wrapped the rod with regular snakes. I like the single footers on a finished rod. They look good and shoot better, but are a bugger to wrap. How do you guys do it? Has anyone got a good method? Can anyone convince me to try them again?
