Notes:

To determine the number of guides for a rod add 1 to the length of the rod in feet.  So a 6 ft. rod should have 7 guides.

Distance from the base of reel seat to stripper guide 30.1 inches or 76.4 centimeters. The distance from the top to the first guide is 4.5 inches or 11.4 cm.

Check the  placement of guides next to the section joints and add or subtract to be 2 inches or 5.1 centimeters from the female section to allow for support winding.

Contact us for a spacing chart for other lengths and models of rods.
