Is anyone doing business with Bob? I bought 2 blanks from them and he never responds to calls or emails now. I need the guide build spacing that he uses and no response.

Any manufacturers suggestions are just that. Why not figure out the placement for yourself? It isn't hard,nor rocket science. What will matter is that the guide sizes allow for any connections to pass through them without hanging up. Stripper guides are usually place just past the reach of the intended users stripping hand.

Put the stripping guide 32 inches beyond the rod butt. Any rod length, any line weight rod. It'll be perfect.

Bob recently had to change his email server, has a new email address that you can find on the website. Maybe check to see that you have the current address.
