I'm building a bent butt rod with a 54.5 inch 50-80 line blank .My question is do I use 4 roller guides or 5 plus tip with regular guides you use enough to keep line off blank .with rollers do you do the same or are you trying to do something else.

There is a lot of friction when there is a 100 lb pull on the end of the rod. As a result, there is a lot of friction on the line to rod, if the line rubs the blank during a fight.
So, keep the line off the blank.
