13' lamiglas build

hello everyone
I'm just starting my first build and i have some questions ..

im building a lamiglas 13' 2pc cpb1562ml blank pairing it with a eba callibre 2 5.1inch reel.

what guides/sizes i should be using is the first thing i would like to get out of the way.
ill be fishing in upstate ny so ice is always a issue.
I've been fishing raven rpx and i would like to use something different.
i need it to be as light as possible while still being strong enough to hold up to the weather around here.

i would like a Tennessee handle and need help figuring out how to shape the handle.
its gonna be 18inches.
how do you keep the Outside diameter even while sanding.

should i turn 2 9inch grips or glue up the whole thing on the mandrel sand it and cut it after ?

any help would be appreciated.

tight lines everyone
