NFC Delta Ice Blanks

Hello Everyone,
I just purchased a couple Delta Ice blanks(HYbrid IP 2101-1 Zentron and a Hybrid IP 330-1 Zentron) from North Fork Composites. Has anyone had any experience with these blanks and have any guide placement starting points they would like to share with me? NFC does not have these blanks listed in their guide spacing table. I called NFC and they referred me to this site. Thanks

I used Mudhole's suggested ice rod guide spacing as a starting point and then adjusted spacing slightly as needed.

Built a couple of the IP2101-1 last year and love them. I live in northern Ontario Canada and use them fishing lake trout and whitefish. I use a 30 size reel with 10lb mono and cut the blank to 29" to accommodate fishing in a shack.
15 3/4" (size 20), 20" (size10), 23 3/8" (size7) 26 1/2" (size7) and a size 7 tip top.
I like eyes with SS rings and #7 tip top just for ease of clearing them when they ice up.
Not sure this is much help but it is what I have done and has worked out good for the fishing I do.
