Tiger Eye Guide suggestion

I just got my first Tiger Eye Blank from Black Dog Tackle , 6'6" medium spinning, and it looks great! I wanted to wait until I looked at it first before I ordered any thread and guides so I could determine what colors to use.

I was thinking of using the Fireball Red single foot guides from Mud Hole. How do think color that will look on that blank?

Thank you.

Warren.

Any kind of red compliments the Tiger eye. Tom

Warren,

Glad you like the blank. I have used Metallic Brown and Gold with gold guides; Blue and Pink with Black guides; Dark Green and Teal; Brown/Black twist; Brown Metallic and Silver with chrome guides; several reds; several brown variations; Black; Silver; and many other colors on these blanks. I haven't found a color yet that looks bad (not even the blue/pink combination) on these blanks. The reds, golds and metallic colors look really good.

Thanks, again for the business. I hope you'll post a picture when you are finished.

Joe
