This all-new wire chuck ensures a snug and secure grip on fishing rods, rod blanks and grips of all sizes and diameters.
The Wire Chuck works to easily grasp any size butt and pairs perfectly with either the RDS Rod Dryer or DCRDS Variable Speed Rod Dryer. This user-friendly chuck is made of durable aircraft aluminum with a spring steel wire for self-centering chuck jaws that won't loosen overtime. Plus, it fits an incredible range of butt diameters to finish anything from ice rods, fly rods, and individual sections of multi-piece rods, to surf rods and larger diameter offshore rods.
Must adjust springs to get out most of the wobble. I apply finish on my Alps wrapper at a higher speed and then transfer to a dryer with this chuck to finish. Makes transfer quick and easy.
Works great!! Great spring tension!
I use the triple rod drying machine and have converted to all 3 wire chucks. Every size rod butt easily transfers in and out of the spring clamp with a pinch. Once, I did get some epoxy on the clamp and I did pull it apart but I easily put it back together by slipping each spring into its own hole. Good product!
I have used the wire chuck with my RDS dryer for a year.
It recently fell apart. One leg just dropped out.
I expect much better performance from a product like this.
