Need Guide layout AT MW50's for 12' surf rod

I am building a 12'3" surf rod. Its an American Tackle Atrex blank paired with a Shimano Saragosa 14000 (spool diameter 68mm). I am going all American Tackle on this one so am using the MW50 microwave guide set that has a 50/30 stripper guide, a 16mm transition guide and 12mm single foot runners. I assume the runners will be located using static guide test, but how do i choose the preliminary location of the 50/30 and the 16mm?

Good afternoon Bob,

Because of the wide range of blanks, handle lengths and reels that will be used with the MW50 guides we have a range for the 3 guides closest to the reel (place in the middle, test cast and adjust as needed)

From the reel spool lip fully extended-

Stripper - 28-32"
Transition - 45-48"
Running Guide - 55-59"

Please let me know if you need more information.

Don, what tip top guide do I use for the Mw50 12mm single foot runner guides? I have a 12 mm tiptop (not MW50) but it sits much lower to the blank than the runners. Looks weird.
