Hi Tony:

 

I agree. Single foot guides on a bamboo rod would be sacrilege and
esthetically unpleasant!  While I have used single foot guides, I prefer
good quality snakes for all my fly rods.  I have modern fly rod with single
foots and I don't like the sound as the line passes through the single foots
- they are noisier than snakes.  Rod manufacturers like single foots because
less wraps reduces the cost.  I used to think snake guides were old
fashioned but in fact, they are quite efficient.

Wayne, As I said, to each his own. If you make a bamboo rod with me and plan
on single foot guides, you will have to take it home to wrap it. LOL  Now I
stand to be stomped on by single footers.

Hi Tony;

 

I see, for me I started assembling spinning rods prior to fly rods.  Most of
the spinning rods I built used single foot guides so I guess single foot
guides look more "normal"  to me.  I'm working on a 7'6" fiberglass 3wt and
actually using single foot ceramic ring lock guides just to see how it works
compared to more conventional fly guides.  I have another 7'6" glass blank
that I plan on using single foot titanium fly guides to see how much the two
differ.

 

I think if I built a bamboo rod, I have to use snakes just for the nostalga
aspect. I do envision single foot guides on it though.

It is a personal thing, I just don't like them. I guess I was weened on
Snake Guides.
Another thing. if not wrapped right, they will slip out from the wrap. Again
we do what we want to do and what pleases us.
