Well, here we are, almost 14 years later . . .

 

I need guide spacing help to wrap an XRA 138 1H as a Conventional . . .

 

Handle Length = 28", from Butt to Center of Reel Foot ( Penn 140L Squidder ) . . .

 

Guides = ( Fuji BHNLG Hardloy ) will start with a #20, then a #16, and #12's all the rest of the way . . .

 

Tip = #12 / 12 Fuji Hardloy.

 

Thanks, in advance !

I would check the rod building forum. There are some great builders there

 

I checked rodbuilding site . . . No one with any experience with this blank . . .  Got a wide-range of ideas, mostly just "general info".

The rod building forum on this site has a wealth of information. I have custom 1203, 1205, 1205-2, 126 and 1322. I don't have the one you are asking about.

I'm hoping that Ron Arra will, also,  post info . . . After all, no one should know more about the blank than the man who designed it !
