I would appreciate the recommended guide spacing for the Si112-2m if anybody has that info.
I don't use guide spacing charts, being a custom builder I have to build to the customer's specs. That said if you look at the guide charts on this site for the 92 and 96 XMG rods you'll see they are identical till the last 3 guides. I bet if you pulled each of those 3 guides back one inch from the EXS 96 setting it would be spot on. Guide spacing charts are in the blanks section of the site.
No one knows as much as all of us.
Thank you, I was only looking for a starting point as I didn't see the si blanks listed in the guide spacing recommendation chart. I figured one of the lamiglas guys knows the spacing they use for the rod they build on that blank. I have only built a handful of rods and just want to get the spacing correct considering the blank alone costs as much or more than a high end finished rod.
If you want the best spacing and performance go to www.rodbuilding.org and look in the library for the article on New Guide Concept-Spinning Rods, than at the page bottom Static Guide Placement.
I guarantee with these two concepts you'll end up with and better performing and lighter finished rod, and these concepts work on all rods from all makers, all styles, of any weight class.
Something else to look at would be the spinning guide placement calculator on the Anglers Resource (Fuji) site, the GPS software will tell you what guides sizes to use, where, etc. out to the choke guide, than the tutorial on guide placement past that will finish the job.
You just give the software some info about the rod components, reel, etc. and it sets the rod up for you.
