It looks better than my first guide wrap.

Most of us have experienced that. You'll be glad you redid a few....
My wraps got better as I was going along. I am going to re wrap the first guide tonight, and see if it comes out better.
Yeah man. I think I am going to cut them all loose tonight and re wrap them all. I am going to do black with a couple green trim bands. Maybe the darker color won't show my mistakes so much.

Dark is usually easier to use. Why do you think most of the production rod manufactures always seem to be wrap with dark thread

Sorry send from my phone, i didn't see the blocking wrap on it.
You must stop your wrap earlier.
Your thread climb on the guide foot, you should stop before, the wrap must be flat.
The wraps that climbed up the foot are the Forham locking wraps.

The black hides the locking wrap. Saw it when I looked a bit closer. Nice wrap, BTW.
