I stumbled upon a 10' 4 piece 3wt blank. I don't remember buying it and not sure of the brand but I'm guessing I was thinking euro nymphing rod. I typically use Sage's rod building page as a starting point. It looks like they changed their ESN line from snakes to single foot guides. I'm thinking of doing the same but would love some suggestions never having use single foot guides before. Does Sage's suggestion of upping two sizes hold true? Recommendations for sizes and taper? Thanks!

Funny, I logged on today looking for the exact same info, As far as I can tell the single foot guides are much smaller than the snakes,  So two sizes may seem about right.
