Thanks for your answer on the main page about the 1083 or GSB 108 1l.


I think I'm going to go with the 1083. I can get a great deal on that blank. You mentioned the Fuji high frame single foot guides, What size and spacing do you recommend. I'll be using the Libra 3500 with braid.

You can go with the Fuji YSG (SIC) or the YLG (Hardaloy) in the following sizes:


30,25,20,16,12,10,10 plus a PST SIC tip.


Approximate spacing as follows:


30 stripper 28 inches from the face of the reel.


First #10 guide 4 inches from the tip top.


Space out the remaining guides in 1-inch increasing intervals. i.e. 6, 7, 8, etc.


Tape on the guides and test cast. Adjust the stripper guide's position until all line slap is eliminated.


Do a stress distribution (static deflection) and adjust the position of the remaining guides.
