Hi Mike,

 

21-22 inches sounds about right. Do a stress distribution test and see how the line goes from reel to stripper and from guide to guide.

 

I am only familiar with some of the Calstar GF graphiter series of composite blanks. This series along with their Eglass blanks have a fast taper compared to the Lami 857S, which has a slow taper.
