Everything i order is very small , many times a few things that cost under $3.00 each , the $6.95 shipping is always more than what i'm ordering lol. On another note getting rid of the original "Quick Grip" was a monumental mistake , the CRB shrink pales in comparison . I was told by a Mudhole employee that the CRB shrink is Quick Grip so i ordered it and was very disappointed ,

I understand exactly what you're talking about Norm , i used 8000 size spools for many years and they cast exceptionally well especially with lighter braids . I much prefer spinners with worm drive oscillation so when i got the chance to pick up Shimano's Aero Technium which wraps 100 feet of line per every full up and down oscillation cycle i jumped on it . It's the perfect choice reel for a

Yes, i understand . the table edge method seems to be the NGC way and the 27 X method seems to just be a great way to determine the area where the choke will most likely be located on most reduction train setups. I think thats where the confusion came in , i was using the table edge method to line up the guides but remembering the 27 X method for where the choke guide should be located. If

Thanks for the suggestions gentlemen , i will take a peak at the 30, 25 , 16 or KW 12 M suggestion , that may help shorten the train a bit . I could also just put the KT 8 where the KW 12 is currently and just scrap the double foot KW 12 altogether or just put the slightly larger KT 10 where the KW 12 was . What a PITA this stuff is. My spinning reel is a large spool diameter distan

Thanks for the response, i considered eliminating the KT 10 for the KT 8 as the choker but the KW 12 is right where the choker fits in this specific reduction train which is my dilemma . I would have to scrap the whole reduction train which fits the 27 X and table edge method perfectly to put the KT 8 where those methods say it generally should be located should it be the choker guide . I

Hello everybody , i wanted to get some opinions on which way to go in the dilemma i'm facing , i am used to using LC guides but went with KW's this time . The blank is a CTS 12 foot S-8 surf rod and i chose to go with a KW 30 - 25- 20- 12 ( All double foot) to one ( Single foot ) KT 10 and then KT 8's on out. Using the 27 X method and table edge alignment the choker lands at 80 inches . No

Hello , i have extensive experience with using the LC guide layout on various surf rod blanks , they most certainly can be used on surf rods shorter than eleven or twelve feet and work exceptionally well . They got a bad rap from many builders because it goes against their long standing belief's but there is no question they work exceptionally well even on rod's as short as nine and ten feet .
