Why Choose the RBS Rod Building System?
The RBS Rod Building System is the best investment you can make when getting into custom rod building... Why?
Well, one big reason is that it's future proof and protects your investment with a system that can grow and change along with your rod building skills.
For instance, we recommend starting out with a hand wrapper and a basic rod dryer, but as you get more into the craft, you will also develop your own preferences for thread wraps, applying epoxy finish, and more.
This could mean upgrading to a power wrapper to speed up wraps and increase your rod building efficiency, ramping up the RPMs of your rod dryer because you've outgrown the speed of the 9 RPM Dryer, or even just adding two more spools for a four spool wrapper ready for any custom thread work.
Each piece of equipment in the RBS Rod Building System family is compatible with the main ABS Aluminum Base Station track, so that your workshop is guaranteed to work flawlessly from reaming handles and spacing guides, to wrapping thread, applying finish, and curing the complete fishing rod.
Not only do these additions fit onto the track, just add the sliding hardware to keep any piece of equipment moving along with you as you complete the next custom rod.
For the RBS Rod Building System, this is all in a day's work. Long story short, there's an entire system of equipment waiting to grow along with your interests in rod building!
Now let's take a look at some exciting equipment upgrades coming to an RBS System near you:
1. Two Spool Thread Carriages & Hand Wrappers
Taking the popularity and affordability of the RBS thread wrapping equipment and making it even better, CRB has launched all-new thread wrapping devices that will truly blow you away.
From improving the ball bearings and tension control, to adding helpful features and innovative thread paths, the new era of thread carriages and hand wrappers are here. With access to two threads at once, you can complete a wrap and add a secondary thread for trim bands, in-lays, and more for a true custom wrap that will make you proud and catch the eyes of customers.
And with access to threads like this, it only takes minutes to wrap an entire rod! Sliding Thread Carriages, like the TC2, are designed as the perfect companion for power wrappers. For example, the RBS-Pro Power Wrapper demands a thread carriage that can keep up and the TC2 does all that and more!
The Two Spool Advanced Hand Wrapper can be a standalone hand wrapper or work in conjunction with power wrappers.
Whether you prefer power wrapping, or hand wrapping, the RBS System has the best thread wrapping device to help you do it. Plus, producing ultra smooth, tight thread wraps means that they're here to lead the pack!
2. Four Spool Thread Carriages & Hand Wrappers
Along with a new ball bearing system and tension control, the addition of two more thread spools for a four spool thread carriage or hand wrapper is a huge leap for custom rod building.
Taking the form and function of the two spool carriage and hand wrapper, but incorporating two more spools helps make decorative threadwork in guide wraps, butt wraps, and more a breeze!
Imagine having four different rod winding threads at your reach at all times while wrapping... It's a no-brainer that this will make even the most intricate easier, while also tremendously reducing the time it takes to complete those wraps that really "WOW!"
The time to upgrade your wrapping methods is now, and these thread carriages and hand wrappers are ready to revolutionize your thread wrapping experience in an instant.
