bad spiraling on spear courtesy


I am remaking my spear and its the first time I've spiraled foam on a core, there are large enough gaps that if you wanted to you could wedge your thumb into and poke at the fiberglass, but this is a stabbing weapon so I would hope that it shouldn't matter too much,
plus, if you count the area that is covered with foam compared to the area that isn't, even with the gaps I bet you still get more than 1/3 coverage.

that and I'm going to spiral cloth tape over this in the other direction so hopefully its not that noticeable.

my main question is, should I scrap my thinking and bad spiral and try again before I waste all my tape?

Re: bad spiraling on spear courtesy


Well, you have 2 options in my opinion,

1. Redue the whole thing, and make sure there are no "dead spots" in the courtesy padding

2. Just put some patches on the areas that you found that might worry you.


I have done the patch work on my spears and glaves before, and they work great, and are easy to do. Also, you save on the tape.
