  1. Seems like it's time to tape it up -- I have found that a PH Neutral Masking Tape is the best, been fishing 2 sticks for the past several months & the guides have not moved. And once you are ready to wrap, there is little or no residue. Buy the 1" wide & cut it the widths you need, also the rubber band sets from MH are very useful in placing guides. Best buy for the tape is an art supply store (d***blick for example). And both ZA & Mike seem to think yr reduction layout should be reduced - easy to do once you are happy w/the reel seat placement. Just to further confuse you - I just picked up an AFAW 11' Estuary, dual rung & the butt to reel seat is 27-3/8" & then 34-1/4" to the 24 stripper - still measuring - so later ...
