I am finally going to be building myself a flipping rod. I have selected a MHX FP885 7' 4" rod. The rod will have a split grip with a size 16 Fuji SK2 reel seat. I also decided to use micro eyes; Fuji. I plan to use a #7 stripper guide then transition to 2 #5 and then 8 #4 and a tip top. I plan on using 50-60 lb braid. My question(s) are.......
1: Does anybody have any experience or information with or on this rod
2; What is your feelings using micro eyes on a flipping rod
3: I will do a static test but can somebody suggest a layout plan to start, ill adjust after my static test
4: I know many builders space the stripper guide 30-35 inches from the reel, so the fisherman has room grab the line. I don't do that, I guess I only pitch so I'm not worried about having a huge distance from the reel to the stripper guide.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Again thanks for your input in advance
