I recently ordered a 12'8" 4-8 oz. blank from Tommy Farmer and he supplied the factory specs for the guide layout.When I laid everything out it turns out the first guide on the butt end is almost 45" from the center of the reel seat. Did I mess up or is this the way it works out to be? I've read some of the reviews some members have posted about this rod and how popular it is. Is that the distance others have to the first guide? Any input would be greatly appreciated.
