I am building a CRB panfish glass ice rod and can not find a guide spacing chart. The blank is 22". Any help is appreciated.

Will you be using a spinning reel or a conventional reel, what size will it be, and what type and size of line will you be using?

Todd,
Figure out where you want your reel and tape it in place.
Then, tape a tip on the rod and run line from the reel to the tip.

Then, simply place guides - likely 2 or maybe 3 guides to keep the rod blank loaded.

If it is a spinning reel, I like to use a bit taller stripper guide so that I don't get a line jerk each time that you turn the spinning reel when retrieving line.

Be safe

Ice rod guides do not suffer much from line wear, but mine always suffered from being beat on to remove the ice which formed in them. [ I did not have a heated shanty.] I avoided guides with insert rings.
