Hello!
I just have bought a Sage 7141-4 blank. In Sage spacing chart on their web site is written that between 7 - 6 snakes there is 17,25 inch than between 8 -7 snakes there is 15,75 inch.
I wonder is it normal? Here is all mesurement among guides from tip top (according Sage web site: http://www2.sageflyfish.com/za/SFF?SAGE_GUIDE_SPACING.MODEL_ID=7141-4+2-H&DOSEARCH=TRUE&PAGE=GUIDE_SPACING ) :
8,3750in
9,5000in
12,0625in
12,8125in
15,0000in
17,2500in ?
15,7500in ?
15,8750in ?
19,7500in
At first sight for me it is not correct, in all my fly rods spaces among next guide are longer than before one towards the butt. So please if someone could explane me it, if I'm wright please write me correct spaces. I ask you becouse in Poland ( whereI'm from) is very hard to inform myself that question.
Maby someone could mesure precisely spacing between guides in his 7141-4 0r 9141-4 ( this same spacing I think)?
Thank you very much and many greetings from Poland!!!

Ok guys, pull those measuring tapes out and ..

Give our guy a hand. I've run into exactly the same issue on guide spacing from Sages web site to the actual laying out a tape on a factrory rod.

Was floored by the difference.

Is it possible that going down the butt spacing geting small!?
That's shown in Sage spacing chart- spacing between 8-7 guides is smaller than 7-6 guides!!! I've never seen fly rod with spacing such a propone Sage web site!
PLEASE SOMEONE EXPLANE IT !!!
