Default Re: Larger or smaller....

I read the infamous "5wt Shoot Out" done by Yellowstone Anglers, and they liked the smaller guides used on Tom Morgan and Sage Z-Axis rods. I've never
even seen a Tom Morgan rod, but can tell you that if the small guides on a
Z-Axis hold back the line, it would be an amazing sight to see what larger
guides do ! I should note the the stripper guide is quite small on the
5wt Z-Axis.

EDIT: I had a Redington RS3 7wt rod, and ALL of the guides were large. The last 3 snake guides were 3/8" from the blank, and the line
slap caused me to return the rod to Cabela's (eventhough it was $89). It cast fine, but the slap was annoying.
