Just bought a Esselle carbon wrap kit want to put a couple of top kits so I can fit the Preston roller pullers, want to know can I get way with one wrap of carbon cloth or will it take further wraps of the carbon cloth. Thanks in advance.

I think 2 wraps is about right 👍that’s what I was shown, and when I did it they were ok

I think 2 is the standard , you may get away with one but if the pole snaps you will have wished you did two. Why risk it.

I remember sending my top kits off to a specialist pole repairer and they came back with 1 wrap, wasn't impressed, put at least 2 on.

Ones I've done have all been two wraps. That's only thin sheet you're using and when compressed by the tape it gets thinner. Results are quite strong when cured.

I'm not naming and shaming, it was my own fault, I should have asked about it before I just sent them off, was a quite a few years ago.
Just check with whoever you are sending them to.

Ye, was asking to see if it was the same place rather than to name n shame. I’ll check when I pick ‘em up next week.
