BD Builders,

I am building a pair of CE 900 Wahoo's and looking for a little insight, currently planning on 10 guides based on the static test 25,20,16,12,12,10,10,10,10,10. For those that own one or have built one, how many guides are used? The static test was fine and I bottomed out the rod to the floor. I don't want to add a extra guide to be be safe but I am second guessing myself on this build.

Thanks
NIck

Hector nailed it.

Line off the blank, no sharp angles, smooth curve over the blank. The Wahoo's are a little forgiving so no big deal if you're off half a centimeter or so.

I need a ride.
Fuji guides depend on which guides im using. And also depends on what reel im using. Im im using something low profile i start with 20 and end with 10 or 8s. If i have a higher reel, i use a 25 to 10s, or 8s depending on how it bends.
