Rate this topic

Hello! J need advise about 85 MONSTER 8'6'' 1-8oz.. blank from United Composites. J like to build this blank with Fuji New Concept guides. Which model and how many guides is best for that blank ( Fuji SIC of course)? J well put on this blank Daiwa Saltiga Z 4500 with PP 80 lb. And same thing for CTS CC903-2 9'0'' 3 1/4 -6 1/2oz 2piece blank .

Thanks!

First off - just so we're clear....Fuji makes a whole line of guides call "Concept Guides" - these can be used for any sort of guide payout, from the most traditional to the most cutting-edge. Then there is the "New Guide Concept" - the idea that more, smaller guides better utilize a blank's capabilities, control line better, and create a more effective, sensitive, responsive fishing rod.

 

The two are not the same thing. Concept guides can be used for anything and the New Guide Concept can be achieved using just about any guides.

 

If your goal is to use the New Guide Concept, then nobody can tell you how many guides you need, what type of guides to use, or where they need to go on the blank. These things are determined by your reel, its position, the line you're using, your blank's unique properties, and the results of your test casting.

 

Here is a brief article on choosing and placing guides according to the new guide concept. Read it over to get a basic understanding of the idea, then feel free to ask us additional questions.

I build quite a number of heavy plugcasting rods just like that. Checkout the following link. That blank is same length and the action as well as the power very close. Go to page 2 of that thread and checkout the reel and the 80lb line as well as the vids showing how it casts

 

My recommendation, fuji lowriders 20, 16, 12, 12, 12, 12 and 12 or 16 size tip. Absolutely no tangles of any sort and gets max cast potential from that blank

More on the same blank and its heavier sibling, tried all the guides and haven't extract better performance from anything else when it comes to strength, casting, clean casting, bulk on the rod, minimum bulk and protrudence for transportation. Ha vent tried the awesome ultimate guides yet though :-)
