Is it spinning of conventional?


What reel and line type and weight will you be using?




Diawa BG60 reel, Stren 17# to approx 25# line, 3 - 4 oz lures; looking for distance casting in Montauk (I couldnt cast quite far enough this past year with my Ugly Stick). Thanx for the interest

Here are some preliminary guidelines for the rod.


Guides are Fuji Hardaloy BHVLG: 40HH, 30H, 25H, 20M, 16L and 16L. Fuji SIC PST tip with a #16 ring.


The following are all approximate and subject to final adjustment after test casting the rod.


Center of reelseat or reel post 28-inches from end of butt.


40HH stripper guide 34-inches from face of reelseat.


1st #16 guide 8-inches from tip top.


Space the remaining guides in increasing increments of 1-1.5 inches from tip to butt. e.g. 9.5, 11, 12.5 etc.


You will need to test cast and stress distribute before finalizing the position of the guides.
