The blank manufacturer should have the recommended spacing. Or, you could get another 13 foot rod and take measurements. The problem is setting the reel seat in relation to the first guide. Basically, I tape the guides on the blank, run a line through the guides and put a load on the rod. The line and the curve of the rod should be parallel with the line not touching the blank or a big space between the line and the blank. Sometimes you have to add guides. I have noted that most carp rods have either 5 or 6 guides plus the tip top. I opt for an extra guide. My Saxon Hexalite has six guides. Hope this helps.
