rod tip and first guide sizes (advice needed)

Recommended Posts

hi everyone, like i've said  before im into old rod restoration at the moment , a simple question this one,...  on any rod   , does the first guide (the one closest to the rod tip) have  to be the same size or bigger then the rod tip ( ring width )?,     or is it ok to have a rod tip that has a wider ring then the first guide , buying a number if rings , tips  etc , thank you for your reply .

There is no reason to have the tip a set size, in fact, the tip size is governed by the blank diameter at the tip, the guides are then selected to suit the application and also so they look right.
