I'm trying to find the placement and number of guides for an 11' 4wt rod . Search didn't turn that up at least not on the first page .

If your looking for a generic guide placement, wouldn't it be easier to find on one of the company sites?

No two 11' 4-weight rods are going to have the same guide placement. Best to use a static distribution test (online library page here). Of course you can fall back on generic charts - they'll work okay. Being this is a custom rod building site, such charts aren't likely to be found here. It is possible that somebody has posted some spacing for a rod of similar length, but what Spencer suggested is probably your best bet if that's the direction you want to go.

I usually use the one on Proofs site and then adjust statically but it doesn't seem to be working right now . I'll try again later . Thx.
