Yeah that's how I do mine, don't use any tape though but I think the tape method makes sense , now I've seen it.. Now let's have a debate about whether to put the ends on top of the rod or under neath! Wink As for me, I put mine inline with the guide feet.

yerrr inlay , Spin I put on the side of blank , casting other side of guide feet [ bottom ] , reason so when you are fishing you will not see where wrap has be finished .
