This attachment functions just like the CRB Tip Top Wrapper in that it assists you in wrapping the tip tops of rods that are very "bendy" towards the top. This product will fit ONLY on the ALPS Rod Lathe Stands that employ a spring to provide downward pressure on the blank while in the rod stand.

These O-rings are oversized to allow for better contact with ice rod blanks specifically, but all blanks will have increased contact as well. The OEM O-rings on the standard rod lathes are small enough to allow the finer noodle tip rods to bend excessively and even slip between the lower 2 wheels that the blank rests on. These can be just be placed on the lower 2 wheels or you can replace all 3 O-rings on the rod stand. Either way will work just fine. This kit includes 2 O-rings needed for proper alignment, but additional O-rings can be purchased as well.
