Guide Spacing

Rate this topic

2 posts in this topic

I was recently given a 2 piece 10' lamiglas ron arra blank, my friend usually marks where the guides go, but he is on vacation. When should i put the guides. I have a 40,30,25,20,18 guide set. I wrapped on a 30' butt. Should i place the 40 guide on the butt end of the blank, or all of them on the top blank. And please give a general spacing for the rest of the guides. thanks, John

The position of the stripper guide is dertermine by the size of the reel and spool face you will be using. Tape the guide at 35 inches from the face of the spool.

 

Then starting at the tip, place the #16

8 inches from the tip top.

 

Space the remaining guides in 1 inch increasing intervals moving from tip to butt.

 

Test cast move the stripper guide until all line slap is eliminated. Then adjust the positions of the other guides.

 

Good luck.
