Get a good ruler (64ths of an inch) so the change hits the same spot on each wrap of the same size guide. There is also a good trick I can show you for little those thin accents. This is green/black classic twist with thin mettalic blue accents
When you say this is a classic twist, do you mean you have two threads - a black and a green - in this wrap or is it the twist thread? It's a little hard to see in the photo. I like the blue tippings, very nice.

I've used this technique for single turn traps. http://www.rodbuildingtutorials.com/...d%20Spiral.pdf

I'm thinking of something like the 5 turn spiral he has there but for the entire guide wrap, two nylon threads though, no metalics.
