Hi rod gurus,
I'm building a 11ft6in surf rod for multiplier use.
I am buying guides online and need some help on nos. and sizes of guides to buy. What do you think of this:

Size 25/20/16/12/12/10/10/8/8/8 /plus #8 tip

    Hi Kahawai,

    Maybe u can consider 25 20 16 12 10 10 8 8 + tip8
    Cos surfrods will not bend as much as jigging rods.
    Unless its not a surfcasting blank.
    (Just my suggestion)

    try local sourcing for guides, unless u r getting
    guide types tat r not available locally..

    Hope this can help u in ur tour of rod building..

    Regards
