I'm going to building my first rod this summer and I want it to be for throwing Irons for smaller to medium grade yellowtail and just a somewhat general purpose rod. I want it to be about 9 foot and be around the 25-50lb class rod. I'm thinking about using a Calstar 90j-B blank and I'm thinking about using a deckhand grip but I'm unsure. What guides do you guys think I should use. I was thinking something like these. http://www.mudhole.com/Wire-Frame-Boat-Rod-Guides-Model-XB-XBB or these http://www.mudhole.com/Deep-Drawn-Saltwater-Guides-Model-DP. I have no idea on where to place them but if you guys have any recommendations id love to hear them and advice for this new rod.
