10 #3 snakes, a 12 & 16 double foot guide, I use Pac Bay N series guides as the frame design resembles snake guides, a bit lighter and more flexible than some
other designs.
5, 10 3/8, 16, 22, 29.5, 37.5, 48, 58.5, 71, 83 3/4, 97, 111 3/4.

thank you Washougal!

 

This has all the parts and pieces, the only thing missing was spacing and who made it.   Thanks for the tips on hardware too!

Was this the maroon blank kit that Roger on eBay sells? I recall the specs were similar. If so, let us know what you think of it.

If the blank is matt black it could be  Mudhole (MHX). Is so then their spacing charts are on the website. Not a bad blank for the money.

Cheers,

Mark

Static guide placement would be my choice on this. There is a neat tutorial somewhere on this one.  I sometimes start with the quick and dirty chart but always roll back to this to see if its what a want.  When its unknown or I no chart I follow the procedure as outlined in that article

Tape the guides in place when you get a spacing layout.  Run a line through the guides, back off a good distance and put a load on the rod.  Check for any uneven spots and adjust the guides as needed.  The line should parallel the blank under load.
