Building a spinning rod on a 10ft, Lamiglas Perigee PSB120 2L. Rated 2 to 5 oz. Reel will be a Nautil Pro 7500P. What guides and what sizes would you recommend? This will be my first spinning rod project - all others have been conventional. Reel seat position - do I use the same distrance from seat to butt that I use on my conventional rods?

Thanks in advance.

I don't know the Perigee blanks but in general , here's some guidelines for a 10 foot spinner.

 

the butt to reel seat will be shorter on a spinner than on a conventional. maybe 3 inches or more shorter. Put the first gathering guide 40 inches from the reel face. Use 5 guides. A good set up for a medium heavy like that would be 50 , 40 , 30 , 25 , 20 and a 16 tip. Put the first guide roughly 8 inches from the tip but be sure to test out the guiode placement with a stress test. you may have to move the guidesn around or even add another , in which case it would be a 16 at the tip.

 

best i can tell you without really knowing that blank.
