Hey guys.


I've built and use only spinning setups for stripers but wanted to build a baitcasting setup for a change. Mainly for throwing 2oz swimbaits.


The guides will be Fuji T-LRVTG titanium torzites, Fuji casting reel seat and EVA/Heat-shrink wrap.


My reel of choice will be the Daiwa Lexa 300HD for now.


Any comments or feedback on how to optimize this build are welcome!

Gut says a taller / larger stripper (#1) a little further out, say around 670-690mm from the c/l of your spool / 650mm from the level wind guide.

Given you want to use LRV's, consider a RV16H, the 35mm-ish height works very nicely with larger LP reels; they will look related

Or: tape up as is, static test right side up and upside down to make sure the wide spacing from #1 though #4 and low height of the LRV12 is not causing any issues. Then test cast.

If you want to avoid a larger/taller stripper guide, maybe add an extra #6 and tighten up the spacing?

I appreciate your input sir! I'll add the #16 and maybe one or two more #6's and see what it looks like.
