Someone that I know that wraps rods said he'd only put 5 on it. Can someone enlighten me on this subject and how many low profile guides that they would use on this blank? Ty
when he says 5 referring to teh COF layout. or cone of flight. on a 10fter, i use... 50, 30, 20, 16, 12 and a ten top. Its an older style of layouts which is still used today, but may not have the same performance as say NGC. that is where more guides are used spaced closer together, and highframes are implemented. strating with a 30 stripper for most 10'ers. Finally your mijo has a the LRC system. Thats lowriders, and they are very small ringed guides for a surf rod but can increase distance casting.
