I have not used it, but have heard good reports about it.

I assume you are looking to do some of the more complex decorative butt wraps. There are some pretty good books out there too. Dale Clemens has a few.

This may not be the correct way. I will try to explain how I do it. So if there is some part of this that doesn't make sense let me know.

I measure the diameter at the butt and the diameter at the end of the wrap figure out the circumference of both. I then subtract the tip end from the butt end and divide that by the number of repeats of spacing. Then I add that to each repeat starting with the circumference of the tip end at the butt end so that I wind up with the butt end circumference at the wrap end.

I will say that I have the best results if I don't add the full difference. In other words of the difference is .012 I usually add .010 and it comes out pretty good. If I do the full difference I have the opposite problems closing just not as bad.

Say you start out with the circumference @ the tip end of .900 and the butt wrap of .972 and you will have 6 repeats.

.972 - 900 = 72

72 / 6 = 12

spacing would be starting from the butt end(remember I don't add the whole thing).

.900

1.810

2.730

3.660

4.500

5.460

You just need more room at the tip end to fit the threads. Not sure how you are making your marks for spacing, but in many cases the marks can be larger than the diameter of your thread. And I don't want to talk down or anything but you really need to be accurate on your measurements when you are working with closed wraps. I use a Machinist Vernier caliper to lay things out.

Hope this helps.

Not sure if you seen this how to I put together on a closed wrap Soaring Eagle How To

It's a good program. Not hard to get used to. The designer is a really nice guy. From Australia if I recall

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
