As a beginner, I would start out with a non-motorized wrapper
If you are handy, you can build one yourself
I used a homemade one for years, before building a motorized set-up with a long support track
Here's one that mudhole sells for $75

I never could get into the motorized ones and always stuck to hand wrapping.

Best tip I can give you is practice on scrap stuff when you first start using the epoxy resin to coat the guide wraps. Don't just wrap a rod then go to town on it with the epoxy, that stuff takes a bit of practice and alot of patience at first. Sometimes warming it up can get it to flow and smooth better but too much heat can make it cure faster. And make sure you mix both parts equally!!! those little syringes they sell to measure both parts are life savers in the long run.

Hey Guys,
Used to wrap a long time ago, was pretty good at it, learned from some of the best, Jim Scarlotta, and Doc Labanowski. Have been looking at some of the latest wrapping sites. Brings back memories and makes me want to wrap again!

PS wrapping is not hard, just need to set yourself up carefully. very satisfying catching a fish on something you wrapped yourself!! I can easily advise on how to get started.

Jeff handled my Daiwa Sealine and it came back looking like a new rod! I will have Jeff do my wrapping tasks. I have enough to do these days!

I've been using C&M Tackle for rod wrapping supplies. They prices are fair(way cheaper then save on tackle), and since they're in san dimas it only takes about 2-3days to receive my order.

I buy most of my rod building supplies from BC Distributing in Cypress. I'm sure Brad can set you up with everything you need to get started. I've been wrapping for a little over a year now and trust me, it's addicting! I recommend you check out Bloodydecks, they have an awsome rod building forum that is very active. Just ask and you get your answers quick! I've learned so, so much from that forum is crazy! Also, watch youtube videos, you can learn alot from watching a video.

Practice on an old rod you dont care about and work your way up until you feel comfortable wrapping a brand spanking one from scratch! Mudhole has great videos that show you how to wrap a rod from start to finish. Also on the Batson website there are some very good detailed videos you can learn all the basics.

Start with a hand wrapper, I still use mine once in a while.

A buddy of mine told me about CM Distributing but it a little drive for me. Couldn't find a website for them. Got any contact info?

Honestly, he has some hooked up prices. He is a wholeseller but told me that I could spread the word out to my buddies.
