Rod recipe

You can use those guides to build up a 7-10ft medium to heavy spin rod or another 50lb jig stick. I find the T-Curves OH guides are quite large for overheads. If they want to keep the line off the foregrip use taller frames like SVSG's.

from my enquiries about the rod I am building, you need a certain type of paint, otherwise it will crack under stress. not very pretty.

someone who has done it before should most definately be able to give you a better response

don't all get bright red rods now ;)
