I agree.

I have my favorite rod a older Loomis 9', 4wt, 2 pc, that needs to be rewrapped this Winter, I'm thinking that I will go with the smaller snake foot guides.

Another thing I will do with this rod is to 'Static Test' the guides for placement, up to this point I have always trusted that the spacing chart from the manufacturer was the way to go, kinda questioning that now after reading the 'Static Test' thread.
