Spinning rod: guide sizing and placement

The article in Rodmaker v10 #4 shows how to locate the placement of the choker guide. Measure the outside diameter of the front of the line spool lip in mm, and multiply that number by 27. That number becomes the distance in mm that that the choker guide is located in mm from the line spool face. The directions work very well.

My question is where did the number 27 come from? Just curious.
Thanks in advance for any information.

It is a factor derived from the average choker distance of several dozen NGC set-ups that were tweaked by trial and error for maximum performance with a variety of lines and reels. This is why it works with nearly any reel and line combination, mono, braid, etc.

Brian,
Normally the choker is about 2/3rd up the rod blank towards the tip.
