I am setting up the CGBT841M for tog and chunking stripers. I'll be spiral wrapping this blank. Can anyone give me a starting point on the guide spacing and rotation?

BNLGH20 through 10.

 

Starting point - wrap as normal, and just rotate teh first 2, 3, 4 guides. Check archives, more than enough info in there.

Billy, you're everywhere! We had a little discussion regarding GUSA for striper fishing on the **** board before.....well, the search engine is dead again and I browsed through about 50 pages before i gave up, that's why I asked.

Oh, my bad didn't know the search was down. Some guys are Tackle ****, I'm the internet *****, hello Jak!!

 

Send me an e-mail at vivonab@colsonservices.com - I'll attach a write up I did regarding the spiral wrap as well as a regular guides on top, and light spinning rods.

 

What Eddie said is pretty much it - it's really not rocket science, and I find it easier to do than a traditional rod because you can static deflect the rod without worrying about the guides flipping over. I pretty much space the guides the same (not exactly, but close enough for now) as regular. Make sure the line flows through the guide straight, and that it touches about the top or bottom of the guide ring when flexed. If a guide makes the line stick out at a sharp angle (the size 16 will, I almost guarantee), you can remove it an replace it with a 12. It's all up to you.

 

As for guides, you can use teh heavy frame heavy ring BHNLG / HNSG - but I think they are just too heavy for any of my rods, so I opt for the lighter framed BNLGH. You use what you think you'll like.
