I've got some ideas for wrap and tipping colors, specifically red, yellow (antique gold) and/or clear. Any other suggestions? Once I get a few good options I'll open up the poll.

I'm kinda partial (OK: VERY partial) to the look particular to a certain Payne 97.

Please consider this a hearty vote for "Main wraps done in YLI 100 silk color #242. Wrap trim done in Pearsall's Gossamer antique gold, highlight trim done with Pearsall's Gossamer in claret"

Cheers!

Gary

Orvis ROCKS!

Chris,

Are you planning to go with color preserved wraps or transparent?

I can go either way Salmo. If I do anything with yellow, the yellow part at least will be CP'd.

Here is what I'm thinking so far:

Clear w/ Red (non CP) tipping
Clear w/ antique gold 7 (CP'd) tipping
Red (non CP) with antique gold (CP'd) tipping
antique gold with red tipping (all CP'd)
Brown/Grey wraps (close to 10) with antique gold tipping (all CP'd) - a la Payne per Gary's suggestion
Or a subdued look with antique gold (non CP which turns brown) with black or maroon tipping

For 'red' I'd likely go with royal hunt 12 for non CP and scarlet 14 for CP'd.
