I am building a Seeker SSU100L 10' surf rod. The guides will be BSVLG in sizes,50,40,30,25,20,and 16. What ring size top should I use should I stay at size 16 or go down to size 12 or 10. Also could someone give me an approxamite spacing for the guides. Thanks for your help. Rick

Rick,

 

Go with a tip with a #16 ring.

 

Here are some general spacing guideslines.

 

Space the #50 stripper 36 inches from the face of the spool.

 

Space the #16 guide 8 inches from the tip.

 

Space out the remaining guides in 1-inch increasing increments.

 

You will need to do some test casting with the guides taped in place and adjust the position of the stripper guide until all line slap in eliminated.

 

Next, readjust the spacing of the remaining guides and then do a stress distributon test. Make any final spacing adjustments so that there are no sharp angles in the line going from guide to guide.
