Hi Ya'll, A friend gave me a couple of prototype jigging rods, (he's an importer) and I thought being I didn't have any money in them I would get the guides set as a spiral/acid wrapped configuration. So I went to my local wrapper and he spun the rod and seems they are both off as to the spine. So once he showed me how to do it, I tried the rest of my rods to practice/check my newfound knowledge. Seems all but 2 were spot on!! but the ones that were not are my latest hitech 2 piece rods which shall remain nameless. They seem to have been wrapped 180 off. I am going to check out some others where I got them to see if I just got unlucky as it were. But now, I can check any rods I buy out in the future though. Do ya'll regularly check spining before you buy rods?
