    I just finished my Shikari BB805 the blanks is 8' and it's rated 15-30 this what i used on this rod i wrapped this one conventional and had to use 10 guides plus tip because the blank is so parabolic that's why i wrap most of my rods acid style the guides are alps xn lites with an alps reel seat and non skid tape for the handles i tried a maze pattern from Billy's book i used madeira tread for the pattern and gudebrod for the guide wraps i tried Randy's tip of painting the blank and i liked how it worked for the white thread thanks Randy here are some pictures
