An Acid Rod or "Spiral Wrapped Rod" is a conventional or casting rod who's guides start out on top of the
blank and then rotate around the rod leaving the final guides and tip under the blank. In a nutshell, this
guide placement reduces torque allowing you to fight larger fish on lighter tackle with less fatigue.
Here are several definitions covering variations of the name, taken from the rodbuilding.org glossary:
Acid Wrap -
"Another term for the spiral wrap. The term originated on the West Coast when one proponent of the wrap
"Jim Racela" was said to have been on "acid" when he wrapped his rod in spiral fashion."
Spiral Wrap -
"A method for taking the line to the bottom of the rod on conventional casting type rods. Results in a rod
which will not twist under load and is inherently stable."
Robert's Wrap -
"Another term for the spiral wrap named after rod builder Chuck Roberts, another proponent of spiral
wrapping for casting rods."
