Wrapped Packer handle on one of Jeff's rods

I've been asked how I wrap the handles on the Packer I use at shows and while kayak fishing.  Here is a close up of a well worn Packer grip.  This rod has been a shows and on the water now for almost a year.  Sure it shows some wear but the grip is in place and very comfy.  It's just an over warp of tennis racket padded tape and then a 1 inch cane tip on the butt.  Right near the fishing reel a piece of plastic leak repair tape keeps it all in place.  By the way the reel looks huge because it is a DM-40 from Qualia as good a baitcaster replacement by spincast as there is.
