Rob,

 

I built mine with Fuji BNLG's. I start with a 25,20,16,14 14 14,12,12, and a size 10 ring. I dont have measurements as far as spacing as I usually do the "bend test" with line and see how the rod bends and adjust my guides accordingly. I like to leave a pretty far distance from reel to 1st guide. Just personal preference.

 

hope that helps.

 

BC

You can use either the NSG or BNLG in thr following sizes: 25,20,16,12,12,12,10,10,10 plus a PST tip with a #10 ring.

 

Here are general guide positions. You will need to both test cast and do a stress distribution.

 

#25 stripper 28-30 inches from center of reelseat.

 

#10 guide 5 inches from the tip.

 

Starting from the 1st tip guide increase the distance from 1/2-3/4 inches.
