Been trying to decide if I want to get a Duce Rod or some similar Spiral guide rod. I went to a supposed dealer for Duce and they looked at me like I was a moron and tried showed me some Walmart rods. I know all of the pros/cons, but I've only cast one once years ago. I like the idea behind the rods being set up this way and I'm not worried about if it looks funny.

What's your experience with them? I normally hear a lot of positive from those who have used them for a while(not that I've heard from too many folks about it)

I have 14 rods with the spiral/acid wrap and I absolutely love mine, especially for cranking,jig,and c-rig. Their are a couple of techniques where I still prefer the standard wrap though. But all of my rods are made by Dave,Custom Angle Rods. What I especially like about Daves' rods is that the customer can get each rod custom made to his/her likening. Ex. Lenght,handle length,foam or cork handle,full or split grip.

I have 2 spiral wrapped rods and LOVE them, especially for CBs. For some reason, they seem to cast a little right of where I am trying to cast and I just aim a little left of where I want the lure to land now, problem solved. Mine are built on Shikari blanks. Hope this helps. Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.

I don't own one but fished with some. Really didn't notice any significant difference in them. There was nothing that made me think I needed it anyway. There was nothing bad about them either though.

After many years of not owning or using any baitcast setups (since I quit bass fishing about 20yrs ago), I broke down and built me a spiral wrapped rod just to say I have one. It has renewed my interest in using something other than spinning gear. Admittedly, I don't see much of a difference in "fishing" it, but I do notice a difference in the way it handles when fighting a decent size fish. It acts more like a spinning rod under a decent load, which tends to be more natural since the line wants to be on the bottom of the blank to begin with. I won't make any claims that all rods need to be spiral wrapped or anything like that, but I sure like the layout, and will be building more this year for my own use.


If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much space!

Less torque on the blank should also result in less blank failure. I spiral wrap most of my builds simply because I am more comfortable warrantying the rod. I see no downside other than they seem to tangle more when laid next to other rods on the deck of the boat.
