Default WB overprint coverage issue

Hello, been trying to expand beyond just discharging garments. Recently acquired a flash in order to do some under basing and flashing between colors if needed. Been having trouble with overprints on a white under base where there are many tiny dots of the under base showing through. No matter how many times I pull ink through they remain. I thought perhaps I was running into a compatibility issue so I've tried numerous inks for either the under base or overprint with much the same result These include Matsui 301 opaque white, Aquo, Permaset, and Ryonet comet white. The overprint I've tried Ryonet's Red, pigmented MatsuiSemi Opaque base and Permaset. I thought perhaps it was my flashing, water evaporating through the overprint so I've tried varying the both the heat and time under the flash, trying very deliberately to over flash and under where ink still pulls up on my finger with little change in results. The overprint was done with a 158 mesh count and the under base is a 110. Both had between 1/8 - 3/16" off contact. The attached image shows the issue. Thank you.
