I've been searching around for some parts to build a 30-60 lb stand up rod to pair with my Senator 4/0. This will be my first rod build so forgive me for any stupid questions. Here are the specs I currently have for what I'm thinking about getting:

-Gorilla 30-60lb blank. 4'6"
-ATC #2 Aluminum butt. 19.8"

I'm trying to get a rough estimate on what the guide spacing would be. I'm guessing I'd need 5 guides+tip? (Won't be using roller guides.)

I found a guide spacing calculator that would probably help me out but the stripper guide placement is preset to 30 so it's probably giving me bad measurements. I need an approximate stripper guide placement measurement for a rod this length. Can anyone help a rookie out?
