Guide suggestion for black hole 6'6" offshore blank

Guide suggestion for black hole, cape cod 661H2mf special slow pitch blank matched with a shimano 20,000 Saragosa spinning reel. This is a 20-50lb and 4-14 oz blank.

I am thinking of using Fuji k series double foot guides KW Model starting with size 40 down to size 10.

Thoughts and suggestion are welcomed.

I'd rather be catching!

Couple thoughts though I dont have the build experience as others here. I just finished a build with the cape cod slow pitch 662 pe1.5-4. These rods are intended to slow pitch jigs so you won't be casting anywhere near that weight. Imo The gosa 20k is alot of reel for that rod. I'm outfitting mine w gosa 6k and 40lb braid. As far as guides I also went with the kw 30 20 10 7 runners to an 8 tip top. I am happy with it. Good luck.
