I know some of you all tie the two tone Copper John's. What is the better color combo for the wires? Lite and dark seems to give segmentation. Have you found a better color scheme?

Here's a well used pic of the only decent one I've tied:

I like the looks of having the highlight color in smaller wire.

Peddler that's nice. I'm gonna try the different gauge wire to get that effect. Thanks.
