Rate this topic

Al,

 

As discussed earlier, the 9' 10 wt. rod I'm building will have an additional size 16 stripper 4 inches up from the 20. Now, if I'm buidling a 9' 8 wt., would you recommend placing an extra size 12 stripper 4" up from the 16?

 

The blank manufacuter suggests the following guide set for the 8 wt.:

 

16 12 5 5 5 5 4 4 4 4 tip

 

So, do you think I should add another 12?

 

Thanks, Mark

Mark,

 

I would go with a #20 stripper and then a 16 and a 12. The second stripper should be a 16. Also I would go with larger snakes or single foots.
