Ok, I must be a monkey because I can't figure this thing out to save my life. I know how to put the blades in, sure. But I can't get a clean cut to save my life. It seems to be chipping out the material in huge bites rather than cutting into it smoothly. Am I going too fast? Too slow? Maybe Im not putting the blades in right, the images show that the notches go out. Is this correct? Could this be my problem.

Someone please help. You can't have nice handles that have chunks missing where the reel seat sits...at least not on a nice looking rod.

Thanks!
