need help with SB1363M-2

Rate this topic

4 posts in this topic

im faced with a problem setting up guide spacing/sizing on my new conventional chunk rod. 1363M-2 cut from the tip slightly. the handle/reelseat and buttwrap are done.

the buttwrap is incredibly long and ends 36" from the reelface. i had intended to place my first guide there, but the rod has so soft of an action that with the stripper im using the line slips and slides all over the buttwrap.

improvising and putting the stripper over the buttwrap about 34" from the reelface helps, but the line still touches if i even approach highsticking with a full drag.

should i get a larger stripper? im using a sz 25 BMNAG will a 30 help? dont have 1 on hand to try out.

any other suggestions? im kind of stuck on this rod now...

A 30 will help, not that much though. If it were me, I'd just put the guide where it wants to be. Even if it's right in the middle of the buttwrap. You could also use a 25 or 30mm spinning guide like they do up in RI.
