crb advanced 2 spool hand wrapper system

 

CRB ADVANCED HAND WRAPPER SYSTEM AHWS-1

This Advanced Hand Wrapper System is a standalone wrapper which has been significantly upgraded over the base model, with a sturdy base, two securely fastened stands with handy precision knobs for quick adjustments — plus, multiple new add-ons to truly enhance your hand wrapping experience.

For example, the all-new ball bearing and spring system eliminates friction for pure, unimpeded thread tension and tight, smooth thread wraps with ease. In the base, the slider allows thread to track accurately along the wrap, while the stands add two more notches to accommodate wrapping larger diameter rods.

The base also includes two convenient insets to keep any guides, tip tops, and tools like guide tubing, razor blades, and more accessible from the first wrap to the last.

With the Advanced Hand Wrapping System, you will produce tight, smooth wraps with every rod turn. Keep it simple and get the job done with two spool options, or upgrade to four spools to let your imagination run wild with fast access to all four different spools at once!

Major Features and Key Benefits:

  • Keep 2 spools at the ready - alternating colors between underwraps and overwraps has never been easier
  • Compatible with small & medium sized spools from ProWrap, Pac Bay, Fuji and more
  • Extra-smooth ball-bearing system eliminates friction
  • Multiple thread guide paths allow you to optimize thread position during tricky wraps
  • Seamless integration with the RBS wrapping system

U40_permagloss_urathane_rod_finish

U40 thread finish high build

U-40 PERMA GLOSS ROD FINISH

U-40 THREAD FINISH LS SUPREME & LS SUPREME HIGH BUILD

The ultimate one-part urethane rod finish. For those requiring a water-clear, non-yellowing finish that will outlast the rod itself in durability.

The perfect finish for fly rods, light and medium spin rods, pack rods, and in all cases where a large bulky buildup on the rod windings is objectionable.

The perfect finish for any rod subject to constant sun and weather. An excellent coating for wood reel seats.

LS Supreme is the final product in the evolvement of the LS series of rod finishes. It amounts to the cutting edge, the advanced state of the art of rod finishes. The LS series improved, as the technology behind its development, evolved to the present state of the art.

LS Supreme is a medium viscosity system, completely self leveling on the most complex of wraps. It is totally bubble free without the use of heat. It is resistant to Ultra Violet deterioration, and is non-yellowing in the most severe sunlight conditions.

LS Supreme has a very long working life, in excess of 30 minutes and up to 45 minutes in some conditions, yet it will cure tack free in 4 to 6 hours at normal room temperatures. It will penetrate and completely wet out 2 layers of thread.

LS Supreme cures with great clarity. It stays remarkably clear indefinitely. It will never become brittle and will remain flexible forever. It is truly the epitome of rod finishes.

**********************************************

Dura Gloss LS Supreme "Hi-Build" - is a dual purpose polymer. It can be used on light fly rod wraps, and is equally proficient on heavy trolling wraps. With 100% solids, consisting of an highly refined epoxy resin and a specially formulated cycloaliphatic amine hardener.

LS "Hi-Build" is designed to be a one coat rod finish regardless of the size and type of wrap. The end result is a tough and flexible coating.

crb polyurethane arbors

u40 rod adhesive

POLYURETHANE ARBORS

U-40 ROD BOND ADHESIVE

Polyurethane is an ideal material for arboring reel seats because it is lightweight and highly sensitive - increasing "feel" and transferring bites and strikes through the handle. The semi-porous polyurethane material absorbs epoxy glue quite well and ensures a strong bond with the rod blank and reel seat. Available to fit most common sizes of reel seats, these arbors all include a 1/4" pilot hole which can be easily reamed or drilled out to fit any rod blank. Sold individually.

Thread Master One Step Premium Thread Finish

U40 brush cleaner solvent

MASTER ONE THREAD FINISH

U40 BRUSH CLEANER SOLVENT


is a unique one-part epoxy finish designed to combat the damaging effects of UV light, keeping your thread wraps tight and bright! ThreadMaster ONE is water-based and ready to apply straight out of the package - no mixing, shaking or stirring required!

Guidelines for ThreadMaster ONE Application Unlike standard 2-part epoxy finishes, ThreadMaster ONE is a water-based, one-part finish, and these guidelines will help you get the best finished results. DO NOT USE FLAME IT HAS NO EFFECT Use straight from the bottle, there is no need to mix DO NOT SHAKE OR STIR! Observations showed negligible thread color changes after applying ThreadMaster ONE. Apply in temperatures above 67F, any lower will greatly increase drying time The warmer, the better. This is not a Color Preserver, so use CP if necessary in your particular thread application. Since this is a water-based finish, after it is applied the finish will dry and shrink slightly compared to its original application. It is generally recommended that the first coat just soak the thread with no buildup at all to help prevent any bubbles that might occur with thicker coats, so wick off any extra. If CP is used, then this step can be skipped. The 2nd coat can be thicker to account for the slight shrinkage once it dries. 2 coats can achieve adequate buildup, but you definitely will in 3 coats. For physical application to thread wraps, apply in the same manor you would a 2-part epoxy. Turn on your rod dryer Depending on the room temperature, allow at least 3 hours between each coat. If any bubbles, the best ways to remove them include blowing them out with a thin straw, and using a toothpick, etc. to poke them out FLAME WILL NOT WORK! Allow at least 72 hours for full cure, but in cooler temperatures allow more time accordingly. Thank you for trying ThreadMaster One! 

Features & Benefits:

  • Non-Yellowing UV Inhibitors

  • Tougher than Standard Epoxy

  • More Flexible

  • Water Cleanup


Effective on all polymers, urethanes, or epoxies before they are cured. 4 oz.

Designed for cleaning brushes used in the application of U-40 rod finishes.

Equally effective on all polymers; urethanes or epoxies, before they are cured. It will not effect the cured polymers of either group.

Excellent for cleaning dirty rods or for wiping rod blanks prior to wrapping the windings and decorative wraps.

Brushes can be dipped in Brush Cleaner, then squeezed dry onto a paper towel. If desired, brushes may be left standing in the solvent.
