  347. Wiseguy

    what did I do wrong here?

    Same thing happened to me but on guide wraps, had to cut those off and start over. But like Doc said, i'd leave them on the tiger wrap since it's a base layer anyways. But yes, the info from the guys above is correct, I do three coats minimum when using CP, then let the last coat dry over night.

    Help on guide sizing

    Richie, The guides I used are SIC guides from phenix in their medium heavy ss frames, they work great for swimbait rods and can hold up to the test of time. Going down to a size 6 is just personal preference. Size 8 would work also.
  528. Wiseguy

    Help on guide sizing

    Recommended number of guides generally is length of rod plus one plus the tip. But best way is to static test and add guides as needed for a smooth line path.

    First of all you need at least nine guides on an 8' rod. I just recently built an 800H and I went all double footed guides with this guide train: 16, 12, 10, 8, 7, 6, 6, 6, 6 + Tip. Also, the double footed alconites dont go down to a size 5, it would have to be a single footed guide, but on...
