    What's all the stuff about wraps? If your mod works why cover it in sticky backed plastic?

    Just wondering. :)

    Different strokes for different folks I guess.

    I never saw the appeal myself. Then again all my mods are black or the closest to black that's offered. Some might find that odd, but it floats my boat.

    In some parallel universe where mods only came in pink, baby blue, or teal, I'd be all over black wraps. ;)

    I ordered my first wrap the other day simply because I find the Silver IPV mini2 slippery that said I went carbon fibre and not plastic.

    To keep the device from getting scratched, to cover existing scratches, to simply change the look or to create some personal style. As mentioned earlier, the textures are nice for added grip-ability.

    If someone PIFed you a hot pink mod pipeman, a wrap could handle that for you too. :laugh: That sticky vinyl doesn't harm the mod, so you could take the wrap off and give it to a lady friend later, too.

    Yep! I wrapped that one, too, for the same reason. And I'll be wrapping my istick 50W for the same reason.

    I wrapped my ipv1 because it gets scratched easily so I could protect the finish.

    I've never wrapped any of my mods but some I've seen look great horses for courses I guess.

    That looks so good. I'm buying an IPV mini now. Where'd the wrap come from?

    I'll be custom making a skin for me mvp cause I'm an artist and that's that I like to do. Some people just like options and expression.

    I got my IPV mini just before Christmas. About a month into ownership, I noticed that my "black" IPV mini wasn't really black any more. Had scratches on it, and the finish is coming off. It still works like a champ, but doesn't look that great. I also noticed the finish on the buttons is coming off as well. Turns out they are copper. So to protect what is left, I got a Tardis wrap with the BAD WOLF graffiti on it. Looks great now. I'm also looking to get a black carbon fiber wrap for my iStick 50 because that sucker is really slippery.

    I can think of a very good reason; the last color of the last mod thye had in stock was something you didnt want (lets say your mvp3.0 was only instock and on sale for one day, and the last one was a pink one). you can j wrap it and save a tiny bit of dignity XD

    but I wouldnt imagine wrapping a high dollar mod. but I have wrapped my mvp 2.0 ^^

    You never bought a thing from China that had the finish start wearing off the first time you picked it up? You pay a price for everything - including cheap devices with cheap finishes.
