When it comes to guides.. I get frozen and cannot come up with ideas and I have been watching a lot of what some of the guys at Rod class do and here and RBO etc. JT always has some cool stuff too. But, I struggle with ideas.. to tie it all together messing with thread and colors and what looks good on the stripper guides.. doesnt look so hot on the small runners at the top as you dont have the same space for the design.. (or I dont give myself enough) This time I am using the outside band with base color gold to make it easier. I noticed Len does that and it looks so much cleaner then trying to do bands after the base wrap. I am kind of excited about this build and doing a Dorado theme and it was sort of by mistake with the marbling ideas I messed with last week. So I started a RCLB80M and have a silver reel seat Chrome guides and a gold base wrap down and ready to marble. but before I do.. I wanted some feedback on the guide wraps The Top photo on the left side I just roughed in and it is sloppy I did in 15 min but sort of leaning toward that one. Dont want it to be too busy to distract from the marbling. I think if I tossed in a JTOB's etc. it would be too much. Thoughts?
