Finished rods ...

RE: Finished rods ...
I've set up one spinning rod like a casting rod, after first two guides larger guides and I liked the outcome. It wasn't quite the "concept placement." When I get a new blank I want to try the concept though.

Quote:The micro guides on the tip section of the rod will greatly enhance the sensitivity also. They take all the weight from the larger running guides off the tip section. I have used the micro's on all the rods I have built for the last six years. They are the way to go.

I've built a couple with micro's - usually use #6 or #7 fly guides instead when I want to go that small. Problem with micros & me is they are to dang small to thread for my old eyes - and I still refuse to wear glasses when I fish.
