Do a search. I just built one for ErikT, he gave it a mini-review a few days ago, and compared it to a St. Croix he had used for chunking.

 

I am not a fan of pre-planned spacing, but I must admit I had a few problems with this rod, mainly because it was the first surf rod I built (actually any rod I built) that bent all the way into the handle.

 

Guide sizes, 25-20-16's to the tip. You determine how many 16's. I ended up placing the stripper 32" from the center of the seat, I know someone else who is at 36".

Mine is always fished 8 or 10 oz plus bait and goes as follows:

BNLG 25-20-16-12-12-12-12-12sic tip

31" butt to reel seat center

36" reel seat center to stripper

That's full length, if you must cut it down take 4in from tip and 12' from butt, or just buy the 10ft Lami 1215M, which is exactly what you'll have after you cut it...

Using the 16's and big surf top is the key to keeping the line off the blank under load. Make certain you do a stress distribution test as this blank flexes a lot. I love mine biggrin.gif
