Rate this topic

Are the ring sizes a measurement?

 

Like if it is a ring size 40. Does that mean the ring has a diamter of 40 milimeters?

 

This may be a stupid question, but hey I get most of my stupid questions answered here tongue.gif

Awesome!!!

 

Thanks Jigger.

 

Does the ring of the first guide on a spinning reel need to match the diameter of a spool.

 

I've seens some custom rods with huge first eyes. Is this really necessary?

 

Thanks,

Modern concept is that the really big (spool size) first guide is not only unnecessary but will hinder casting since it will allow line slap against the blank. A first guide like the fuji BSVLG 40HH is plenty big enough and will keep your line high off the blank.
