I have a rather expensive Italian 3pc blank with 2 spines in each section, they are 180 degrees apart and equal in intensity. I am about to put the guides on the blank but don't know where to place them or if I should even continue. I also have a finished rod by the same manufacturer that has 2 spines 180 degrees apart in 2 of the sections and only 1 spine in the 3rd section. The guides are placed so they are opposite a spine on all 3 sections. I love the way this rod casts and plays fish.

I plan on contacting the importer to see what he has to say.

What would you do?

Thanks in advance,

Don O
