Help Understanding What The Different Types of Stacked Leather Wraps Are - 03-06-2015, 07:11 AM

Could someone explain what the different types/styles of stacked leather wraps are? Specifically, what are Impression stacked leather wraps? Mixed stacked leather wraps? Penetration stacked leather wraps? and Striped stacked leather wraps?

Thank you.

I've never heard of dividing stacked leather into types as an official type, I would guess Impression are those with a texture added to them, Mixed would be possibly different types of leather strips used together alternating the bands, Striped maybe for color variance in the strips, penetration I don't even know if I can take a guess as to what that is aside from maybe leather that was treated an extra step with something.

Thanks for taking a shot at explaining this for me. I'm going to try to include a picture I found when I was googling stuff about leather wraps. It apparently WAS on Tiger's site, but there isn't much listed there at all now (or if there is, I can't find it). Anyway, this pic clearly suggests that there are all these different types or styles of stacked leather wraps. I don't have a clue about this stuff, and the pic is small. And the link didn't take me to any explanations. So I figured it was just me that didn't understand this stuff and I figured I'd ask on here. I hope the pic uploads. Not real sure about how to do that.

A quick phone call to Tiger (ask for Tony) can answer all your questions. As far as i know, they came up the idea of "stacked" leather wraps, and have done quite well with them. Other people do them now, as well, but Tiger was the innovator.

Oh, that actually just lookes like names for their designs, not actual different types of wrap. More like car colors rather than car models to use an analogy.

Thanks, Scott.
I just got home from work, so it's probably too late to call Tiger, but I'll give it a try. If I can't reach Tony tonight, I'll try again tomorrow (or, if their closed tomorrow, then I'll call on Monday).

Good point. That could be it. I'm about to call Tiger (another person posted a suggestion to call them) so I'll find out.

Hey Scott,

I just got off the phone with someone (not Tony) at Tiger Products. The lady I spoke with was very helpful. The bottom line is that they do both regular and stacked wraps, and they have five different "styles" of stacked wraps. They deal with businesses (like seyberts) rather than directly with individual consumers; but anyone can find authorized dealers by looking on Tiger Products' website and those dealers serve as retail outlets for the consumers. But the retailer DOES NOT put the wrap on the cue. Tiger Products does the actual work. At least, that's what I got from the lady I just spoke to there.

I know there are other options too. But at least now I know more than I did this morning.

Thank you.
