    First build coming up!

    Hey everyone,

    I wanted a hook keeper on one of my decent rods, after looking into it I found this whole world of rod building that I never knew existed.
    After using the cardboard box and microwave motor setup to complete the hook keeper I'm pretty happy with how it turned out for a first attempt, plus lots of learning points along the way!

    So for my first build over the chrissy break I'm planning a 2pc 7' spinning 1-3kg fast action type of setup with split grip.

    Now a mate of mine has one of the Daiwa Gen Blacks and love the guides they have, the tips are so nice and small. The one I would like to sort of copy is the Scratchy 702LFS.

    I can't seem to find a guide set to match this?
    Does anyone know what they use?

    Thanks in advance

    Thanks heaps Owen, is K the size?
    Do certain sizes only fit certain size blanks?

    K is the style.
    Guides should be sized according to intended use.
    If you're unsure I suggest you give someone like Ross at the rodworks a call
    He can match everything thing up for you so you get the right sizes.
    Cheers,
    Owen
