I'm out of town doing the "wife must go somewere" routine, so today we're taking a jet boat trip up Hell's canyon.
You make this yourself?

I haven't had to use it in over 40 years of building, and will probably not start now

Yes I made this myself just for the hell of it as I was always seeing post asking if anyone ever made a Lazar guide system that works for guide setup,I myself do not even use it as it but do like to show it to my customers just for show sometimes. The real purpose of this tool is to show the exact point where the blank is bent so that one can get a better idea of were to start making a guide adjustment and it makes a big difference in the correct guide adjustment unlike what some people like to think.
Use the exact same setup as in the Pic's and white plastic with mags and you will find that the Lazar will lite up all the way down a 9ft blank with no problem.

It does not matter if the blank is Lazar straight or not because you must first put you guides on the rod as straight as you can and then you put the Lazar tool on the rod. What you will now see is where your guides need to be corrected and this tool makes it easy and fast and it beats the trial and error method that we all use anytime.

an equal amount of guide on either side of the blank. I look at the rod from at least three angles.
Marriage is like a deck of cards- in the beginning, all you need is two hearts and a diamond. In the end, you wish you had a club and a spade.

Laser liner, most worthless tool I ever purchased. Wouldn't fit fly rod seats without thinning it way down. Not only aren't blanks laser straight, rod wrappers aren't either. Back to the old method that has served me well, reflection on the blank.
