We are excited to offer rod building video tutorials. We are currently working on a new series of videos detailing working with ferrules. Removing, replacing, fitting, etc... will all be addressed.
Guide Placement Calculator
Guide spacing is both an art and a science. At the link below you will find an excellent guide spacing calculator. To get started simply enter the length of the blank and the number of guides. The general recommendation is to take the length of the blank in feet say 9' (round up if necessary) and then add one to determine the number of guides. A 9' blank, then will require 10 guides. You can also use our custom guide and spacing service to get a set of custom recommendations.
