Rod Builders - Wrap Designer Software

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

My name is Chris Stanton and I have been building fishing rods for a number of years now. In fact, rod making is not my full-time job but I do wrap rods for one of the 3 major custom rod companies in the Minnesota metro area. My demand is by far in ice rods and an issue I have with some of my customers, and probable every other rod builder has, is explaining thread color combinations and trying to explain what the rod is going to look like finished. I am a software developer by day and have started writing an app to help solve this issue. The app, Wrap Designer, contains real parts and supplies from manufactures like: ProWrap, Sulky, Winn, Fuji, DH Custom Rods and Tackle, MHX, St. Croix, RodGeeks, CTS and a few others. It allows the User to configure their ice rod, how they want it, by using real components and many options.

I did post this same message in a more local, Mid-West, fishing forum and received a lot of great feedback.  The issue is that the feedback I received did not come from any rod builders.  Some of the feedback I received was to incorporate a weave/tiger wrap simulator into, Wrap Designer.  Note, I have been working on a weave and tiger wrap simulator app for a period of time now and its not ready yet, but its coming.  I have not decided if those will be a paid or free app but Wrap Designer will stay free!

Also, this app is currently in its early stages and is only built out for desktop use right now and is mainly directed towards the ice rod builders out their. Since I'm from Minnesota, where ice fishing is more popular and arguable more fun than summer long rod fishing! Mobile frame work will be coming soon! Ill attach the link below and any comments, suggestions or  negative feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

    • Butler turning down the offer was a no brainer...if he signed it this year he would lose out on like $60 million opposed to if he signs after this year.  Sure he could blow out a knee and not get signed but odds are in his favor that he waits a year gets same contract but for $60 million more.  NO BRAINER!!  We offered it out of respect but knew he was not going to sign it...
    • I'd like to see you cut them in half first.......😋
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Water temperatures are starting in the low 70’s in the morning, reaching mid to upper 70’s in the evening.

      Minnesota walleye action can be hot running deep diving crank-baits straight, down rigging or lead core. Soft bottom areas can also be worked with spinners and a night crawler.  Fish have been favoring gold on bright days and orange, chartreus or pink in low light.  Many larger northern pike this last week in the boat via crank-baits just outside of rock reefs and points.

      Canadian walleye fishing has been more productive away from reefs and points in soft bottomed areas. The best method is to pull a spinner to find concentrations along the bottom and switch to jigging to fill out limits.

      Musky attitude in Canada varies day to day. Plenty of fish are still being caught in shallow weeds including a couple of 50+ giants this past week.  Fish are also being caught in more traditional mid-summer spots such as rock reefs and points.  The most productive baits this week were crane baits or other flat baits, buck tails and top waters. 

      Until next week,
      Sunset Lodge
       
    • we do a package similar to big dave's shrimp boil but with walleye layer of sliced new taters on the bottom, then the walleye filet, add carrots, bell pepper and sweet onion from the garden, w/butter pat and old bay i seal the packet and poke once with a fork to let some of the steam escape. on the grill at 350 for 40 minutes  
    • 5 qts pickled green beans, 2-2gal jars cukes.
    • Port Washington has been hot but mostly cohos.  A lot can change in a couple weeks.  Will wait and keep our options open as long as we can.
    • Do you boil the eggs before smoking them?
    • that's my thoughts to Bobber...
