Question on guide placement
For the rod I'm building, I have a table for the guide placement. It says the numbers are distances starting from the tip. Does this mean from the tip of the blank ferrule, or from the tip of the tip top once its on? I ask because one guide marking is fairly close to the end of the ferrule.
For example, it says the one of the guide spots is 27 5/16" but the blank is only 28.5". Isn't that too close?
