Default Re: Rod building forum.

Hi rod builders,

I need some advice on building my first rod. I ordered a kit, so I have all I need. The grip is on and the tip is...sort of on (it seems loose, but I think I can fix that later). Here's the question: should the guides be on the soft side or the stiff side of the spine? I read soft side on smaller rods and stiff side on larger. I'm putting together an 8 weight.
