Guide Size for butt guide

Rate this topic

2 posts in this topic

Al,

 

I am currently setting out to build a boat rod which is going to be spiral wrapped. The rod is a 7ft St Croix 2SWS70mhf rated for 20-40lb line. The reel that will be used is going to be a Penn 113h. I really just have a question regarding the butt guides size and the smallest guide size considering I will be using 40 Lb mono. I would probably go with a size 20 in a higher frame guide for the butt and an 8 for the smallest guides once I have made the 180 degree turn. What would be your recommendations. Thanks for your help.

Acker,

 

Fuji BHNLG or HNSG guides:

20,16,12,12,10,10,10,10 plus an SIC tip with a 10 ring.

 

I just finished a matched pair or 20 lb sailfish rods set up this way.

 

Al
