This is what I have done on a couple of ultra lite bass rods I built for others. Have also used for conventional lay out. I lay a thin layer of epoxy over the right where the guide will be placed & going no wider than the guide foot is long. Just a thin enough layer that the foot doesn't contact the blank. I let the epoxy get tacky then carefully place the guide on top of it straight then wrap.

This has worked very well on rods using up to 60 lb. line for me. It is very possible & has happened that guides can damage a blank if not properly prepped or wrong thread tension for the wrap... Jeff

Still not by any means a definitive thing. After more testing on 8'-9' blanks & placing the guide out further than normal Ive yet to see a huge loss in power while pulling on something  stationary. Also have not noticed a big diff in the bend in the rod. Casting does improve.

Different blanks could show different results. Every blank can have it's own rules regarding how it might respond  to different lay outs. So none of what I've stated is or should be taken as hard fact.

Other wise It's like trying to come up with a guide lay out chart that works for all blanks. Which I think is an illusion that can be loaded up behind the tractor & spread out so the grass can get green.... bunch of crap & entirely not possible... Jeff
