Very nice! As I sit and contemplate my first build I too have considered single foot guides. But since I want to build a 7wt I am not sure if single foot guides would be too delicate on a rod I intend to use for reefing bass out of heavy weeds.
I do want to build some smaller weight rods (have a 3 wt now but thinking of adding maybe a 2, or some day an entire set 0, 1, 2, 4 and on
) and I will probably experiment with single foot guides on those.
