Any one have a suggestion for adapting a oversized rod tip. The tube is too large for a 9 and is a bit to small for a 10mm tip.

New guy here, building my second surf rod. I want to set the reel seat for maximum casting distance. Some say it's best to measure from the arm pit, while extending your arm along the blank.
