Custom Builder III blank

Rate this topic

3 posts in this topic

Al,

I bought a Custom Builder III blank from Clemens in their closing sale. It is rated 1-5 oz. Are you familar with this blank? What does it compare to. Usually I try and do a search for recomendations like this but I did not find anything on this blank. I want to get some input for guide size and placement, any out there would be appreciated. I will be using a 706Z on it and thought a 50 stripper guide would be appropriate but I do not see that size listed in the catologs I have.

Thanks

Gee

I believe these blanks are very similar to Lamiglas in action. As far a lure weight range my guess is that the sweetspot is 2-3 ounces.

 

I would go with a 40HH stripper guide in either Hardaloy or SIC. Position the stripper initially 36-38 inches from the spool face to the stripper ring. Do some test casting and move the guide until all line slap has been eliminated.

 

The remaining guides are 30H, 25H, 25M, 20M and 16L.
