KR Guide Placement Software

I've only built a few rods but this will be my first using the KL-H guides. I've entered all the information into the software & this is what it came up with. Can someone explain how to take this information & convert it into inches so I know where to put the guides? Am I assuming correctly that the stripper guide is to be at 19" in front of the spool axle? If that's correct I'm just confused with the rest of the numbers.

Stripper: 16H

2nd Guide: 8H

3rd Guide: 5.5 M

Number of running guides: 5


YOUR BUILD SHEET:

Stripper Position beyond spool axle tip: 19"

Stripper to Second Reduction Guide: -0.56"

Second Reducer to Third Reduction Guide: -0.41"

Third Reducer to Choke Guide: -0.5"

Total Reduction Train Length: -1.47"

Choke Point Position beyond Spool Axle Tip: 17.53"

What heck did you enter into the calculator? That’s totally weird. How long is your rod and what size reel and type of line are you using? What is the distance from the butt to reel spool, or the distance from the reel spool to the tip top? Give us this info and we can help

Thanks for the response. I guess I should slow down & read the instructions carefully. Total brain fart on my side as I measured from the tip to the spool axle instead of the butt to the spool axle. Everything is good now. Thanks for responding.
