Did you tell the builder wire was to be used? If so he should have used the proper rings, sic or otherwise.

To the best of my knowledge MHX is the only blank to provide this info, and it is indeed a great service to builders. Others should take note.

You can use a KW-10 as a replacement for the RV-6 if in doubt. It is the appropriate height.

Typical bass a-rigs can be seen at Tackle Warehouse. The Flash Mob Jr. is on the light end of the spectrum weight wise. And thanks to all who made useful replies.

I always look to them 1st. 3000 mi. west of here takes 1/2 the shipping time (or less) as 1000 mi. south typically does. I need things from both directions. lol

I don't believe a casting rod has a guide that's referred to as a "choke" guide.

After further review I will politely bow out of this topic. There's likely no one with less knowledge about downrigger rods than myself, and I'd just cloud the issue.

I would e-mail Batson or Utmost and tell them what you're looking for. This is right in their wheelhouse. They're working from home in a lot of cases calling is not good right now/ Read the posts 5 and 6 down from here..

Spiral wrap would be the best way, but ask ASK HIM FIRST, many don't like the look, regardless the benefit.

So I will continue to buy blanks based on the opinions of builders who seem to think along the same lines as I think. At least I think that's what I think.

Take a look at BC Grey corrosion control frames, I love the look. By the way, sounds like a great rod. Less is more.

DNA is very useful for rodbuilders, but it's not needed to remove excess CP.

If you build it as Norm advised, you'll build them all like that from now on. My hardest choice these days is whether to use a 20 or a 16 KLH reduction train. I would certainly go with the 16 in your case. I build bass, trout, walleye type rods.

Actually Mike, the DNA thing was a good idea . Wrap a piece of towel around it, soak with DNA, let it sit a few minutes and it might soften enough for the thumbnail scrape to work. A little heat from a heatgun would aid in this.

Acetone would likely remove it. Do it outside, so's not to inhale the fumes. (before I get jumped on. lol)

Rich, I might suggest size 5 runners, still small but not "tiny" from a threading standpoint. ( or as Michael said above, had I been paying full attention)

Rod Geeks may have blanks similar to your St. Croix. This topic is way out of my wheelhouse, but I'd look to them first.

Rich, a few posts below this one find, Advice Needed: Guide spacing. Read it paying attention to Norms' reply. I would build all these rods this way with the Fuji K guides of your choice.
