ROD BUILDING TIPS
Smooth Pull Loop

Capt. Paul
By Capt. Paul Darby

I use a 4 inch monofiliment loops of 6 or 8 pound test for a draw string to tuck the tags on the end of a wrap. A piece of red yard looped at the 'knot end' of the mono makes locating the loop on a busy work bench much easier.

Guide Chart

To avoid breaking thread or stripping the metal cover when drawing the tag end, leave slack on both sides of the draw string. ~ Capt. Paul (aka qrrfish1)
