guide placement/sizes on 1321L or 1201L

Rate this topic

6 posts in this topic

hi all,

just had a rush job dumped on me..

watched a good friend's factory lami explode friday while hauling a 10lb bass up onto the rocks and i knew what was coming next...

yup, got a phone call today... "how quickly can you build an 10' 1 piece lami? i need a new lure rod NOW!""

 

so ill be whipping out a lami 1201L or 1321L to match a VS150 in the next 2 or 3 days... not sure which as my friend is still undecided.. ill know when it gets dropped off at my house.

can anyone give me the sizes/placements they used on these blanks? since i wont have a lot of time to playa around i want a good starting point for static deflection.

Some more numbers to kick around,IMO...

spacing from tip-7 3/4-20-33 1/2-53 1/2

good luck Mike, but I would let that epoxy cure 7-10 days before I fished it

thanks very much for the advice and #s guys! you cut my static deflection time down significantly!

fishing has suck-didlly-ucked so the "rush" is not as urgent, i have till the fishing picks up to wrap this baby.

i got the 1201L last night at about 2:30am, it had corktape, a top, and was spined by 3:30am, guides are chosen, i tried both set ups and played around a little more and decided on a sz16 top, then BSVLG20 BHVLG25M, 30H and 40HH.

i have time today to do a few test casts on my roof (yes, on my roof) to finalize the stripper position and then get staarted the wrapping... black and silver woo-hoo!

although this in no 2 1/2 hour rod (damn that was quick WB) im going as fast as i feel comfortable and im sure it will be fishable by monday night.

luckily i use glass coat finish and it can definitely be fished 24hrs after application.

thank again and ill post pics when i am done...
