Default Re: Saddle wing not staying straight

If you do the pinch wrap correctly, they should not roll

Hold the feathers securely and make 3 wraps. No more no less and do not tighten until the end.
Straight up (capture the thread)- straight down (capture the thread) . Straight up-straight down. Straight up -straight down.
Then while keeping a tight grip holding the hackles in place, pull it all tight on the last downward wrap.
That should do it.
