Fergar,

If are are not put off by initial cost.....
Fuji's RV's beat the KW layout hands down; but is expensive....

RV25 RV16 KW12M KW10M to KW10's.
A word of advice: conventional wisdom says 6-7 guides total. Ignore this.
The extra friction from the extra guides is LESS than the friction of line slapping against and around the blank. And the rod will feel different!


For a 13'6" I would PERSONALLY use 9 maybe 10 guides + the tip top
