    Chris,

    Two methods I use for alignment of the guides; 1. Sight straight through the guides to the tip just like sighting a rifle and 2: hold the rod vertically at arms length with the guides facing away from you. You will see the back of the guides and it becomes very clear which ones are not aligned.

    2. Use a cigarette lighter just to wave over the fuzzies and they will disappear.


    Regards
