Step 3 – Guide Spacing
Below, you’ll find the proper spacing of the guides. Note that all guide spacings are measured beginning from the tip section and that you’ll need to assemble the blank prior to measuring for correct placement of guides. Also, different length rods have differing measurements and number of guides, so be certain to follow the chart applying to your particular blank. All spacing figures are measured in inches without tip top attached. Be sure to attach the tip top first!
