Guide spacing suggestions, SB 136 4M

Best way is to mount the reel (tape will do) and install the tip. Then hang some weight off the tip while the rod is held at a 45 degree angle (a sand spike will do). Run line from the reel thru the tip and move your guides around till the line thru them follows the bend in the blank. Probably will take 7 guides BNLG's starting with a 25 or even a 30 depending on how high and wide your reel is. End up with a few 12's sounds about right. Stripers on Line article by Al Goldberg.
