    Is it true, it matters what way the wrap goes depending if the user is lefty or rightly?

    What is the lightest rod you apply a spiral wrap to making it effective?

    With a lighter blank of course,would a spiral wrap be effective on a fluke outfit

    Probably just live bait rod, maybe drop some flat fall jigs with it. Targeting smaller bluefin if possible. Yellowfin, albacor, big eye. What ever I can hook into really! The visx16 Reel has caught 350lb yellowfin so should handle most fish that I can handle haha.

    Yes it is true
    the issue is anglers tend to hold their rods twisted upwards to the side they are cranking from. this means are rod built with a left twist ( anti-clockwise) acid wrap used by a lefty exposes the blank to line contact in the spiral transition................whereas used by a righty the line is moved further away from the blank in the transition.
    The twisting of the rod to shift the handle rotation away from vertical is a natural human motion that eases the loads on wrist, elbow & shoulder rotator cuff during the cranking action & is driven by the cranking hand.
    hope that explains for you................its not a fishing myth.

    Sorry you lose me there:p. Looking to get one that’s built and getting a local rod builder to move the guides to Spiral towards the other side.
    Left hand cranking Handle, the guides spiral “ClockWise”, right?

    Correct.

    The correct rotation has the transition guides rotating further BELOW the blank as the reel handle axis is raised.
    Lefties CW acid wrap
    Righties CCW acid wrap.

    It disappoints me to use the modern term acid wrap as we ( all of us ) lose our connection to the Guy who originated the guidetrain style............ historically , its a "Roberts" wrap.
