Hello from Oklahoma
Hi all i have Sooner Custom Rods in OK. and am new to this board. The only weave i have done is the shark in Dale's book some 20 odd years ago. I have read Jim's book on weaving and have ordered Doc's DVD on weaving and have the Pic to weave i bought from Acid Rod. I would like to buy a used Wonder Weaver as i only have a 50 thread jig and i don't know how to use it for bigger weaves than 50. I can't post on buy and sell as i don't have enough posts.

The weavs on the site are really good looking and i think a weave could really add to a  custom rod.

I have been building for about 25-30 years and love it.

Thanks for reading and have a great day.
Remember the best time to go fishing is when you get the urge.

G'day Paul.
We're very happy to have you aboard.
If we can help in any way at all, just yell.

As far as the WW goes, I'll adjust your count so you can place a want ad.
Personally I prefer to use a standard type loom up to 100 threads and switch to the WW for the ones over.
I just find it easier to read one of Doc's looms quickly because all the numbers are more or less pointing straight at you.
The WW is a fine tool though and I wouldn't be without one.

cheers,
Owen
