1363M-2 Guides

Hi Al,

For the 1363M-2 E-glass 11'6" 2-piece blank: Are 6 guides (40HH,30H,25H,25M,20M,20M) sufficient or would 7 guides even the load better for this size rod? Would a 2-piece rod of this size require any additional guides vs a 1-piece?.

Thanks, Russ L

That particular blank is parabolic in action. You could go with the six guides you mentioned or add a #16 guide. My preference would go with the additional guide.

 

You will need to test cast the rod and do a stress distribution test before finalizing the guide positions. I would start with the 40HH stripper 36-inches from the face of the spool. Test cast and adjust the stripper's position until all line slap is eliminated. Then adjust the position of the remaining guides.
