spacing suggestions?

12 December 2014 - 09:02 PM

Any suggestions on how many and what spacing to use with fugi titanium-framed SIC and REC recoil black ion coated nickel-titanium guides on a (baitcastor) NRX 802c 1pc. 6'8" ex-fast medium 10-14lb?? It seems everything I find online gives me a different answer....ranging from 6 to 10 guides & 3 1/4 to 6 1/2 in. spacings. The more I read the more I am getting confused....Thanks

cork dye?

10 December 2014 - 07:04 PM

Was wondering if cork can be dyed? If yes, with....? I have a friend who builds custom maple guitars and he often uses koolaid to tint but not conceal the wood
Can that be done with cork as well??

Arrgh!! Is it possible to undo "done" without starting

Hello, please refrain from laughing and shaking your head....
Is it possible to remove, resize,and reposiation the first guide (closest to the reel) without messing up my paint job and having to adjust ALL of the guides?? Oh yes...it is a 9'6" gloomis 2pc. blank steelhead/salmon spinning rod with Fuji single foot guides. I put 3 coats of epoxy on all wraps and then 2coats of rod varnish over the whole thing.
Thank you VERY much in advance!
PS feel free to laugh now =)

Tickled pink!

Hello all and I thank you In advance for your help! I am tickled pink to find this forum and looking forward to soaking up the wealth of wisdom accumulated here! My name is Athena, I live in a tiny town in WA state with the Cowlitz River for a back yard. I have an active obsession of fishing which has led me to build my own custom pink rod. I stumbled and guessed together a 9'6" spinning rod and loved it, i'm hooked! I am starting my next attempt on a 6'8" split grip spinning rod, hopefully with much less stumbling and guess work thanks to this site! Thank you!!
