What Is Acid Wrap on Fishing Rod?

Acid Wrap is a type of coating that can be applied to the surface of a fishing rod. The purpose of this type of coating is to provide an additional layer of protection and durability for the rod, as well as for the fishing line that is used in conjunction with it. This type of coating has been around for many years and has become increasingly popular among anglers, who are looking for an extra layer of protection from the elements.

The process involves applying a chemical solution to the rod that will harden and form a protective barrier against water, dirt, and other debris. This layer will also protect against UV rays from sunlight and other damaging elements.

The acid wrap also helps to reduce friction on the rod when casting or retrieving a lure, allowing the angler to achieve more distance with their casts. Additionally, it helps to protect against corrosion caused by saltwater or other chemicals used while fishing.

Acid Wrap comes in different colors and textures depending on what type of rod is being wrapped. It can either be applied directly onto the surface of the rod or onto a backing tape that can then be applied onto the surface. Acid Wrap is generally easier to apply than other types of wraps, as it requires only basic tools such as scissors, tape measure, sharp knife, and clean cloth.

Once applied properly, Acid Wrap will last for up to two years depending on how often it is used and how well it is maintained. If taken care of properly it can extend its lifespan even further.


In conclusion, Acid Wrap is an effective way to protect your fishing rod from corrosion caused by saltwater or other chemicals used while fishing. It also provides extra protection from UV rays and reduces friction when casting or retrieving lures. With proper care and maintenance, Acid Wrap can extend its lifespan up to two years or even longer.
