Fuji RV-H Guide Train Help

Hey Guys,
I'm building myself a couple new spinning rods for sight casting Cobia and would like to use the Fuji RV-H in my guide train. I haven’t built a rod with these guides before and I'm not certain what size/spacing I should be using with these guides. I was hoping someone here might be able to help me. I've "googled" and the best I have come up with are the following recommendations off the anglers resource site:

-RV25H, RV16H, KW10M or
-RV20H, RV16H, KW12M

The setups will be:
Blank: 7’ Rainshadow Judge
Reel: Shimano Saragosa 6000
Line: 50lb Power Pro Slick

If anyone could help me with me the correct guides and spacing for this setup that would be fantastic.

Thanks,
Dan

The RV25H to RV16H to KW10M makes sense to me based on height.
RV20H , RV16H, KW12M does not make sense to me based on height.
If using the RV20H, I might think about using RV20H, KW12M, KW10M.

With a large reel and heavy braid I think the RV25H reduction train might be a better choice. On a 7’ rod the reduction train will be short, maybe about 20 to 22” total with the stripper at least 22 to 24” in front of the spool. I don’t build this type of rod, reel and line combination, but I do think such a guide train will work. Runners will be in the size of your choosing.
Good luck.
Norm
