Got the components built up to the head/wing and all is tight however after securing the head/wing with a reasonable amount of torque it is wanting to spin.... Rotate whole around the hook

Any tips or tricks out there for this

or am I doing something wrong

assuming you've already combed the underfur out up to this point...

using the soft-loop method put a loop around the hair only - then around the shank and draw the loops tight pulling thread upward between thumb and forefinger.

I use a slightly different approach- two soft loops around hair and shank. Tighten upwards while hair is gripped between thumb and finger, then two tight loops tight against front of lifted hair, then two more tight loops over the soft loops through the hair.
