Hello, I am building a 6 and a 7 wt for a friend, both 9,6'. He is a very good distance caster that shoots a great length of line.
Fishing in light saltwater for trout mostly.
I have been test casting a lot for several days, but being such a limited caster as I am, I can't agree with myself on what works best regarding to guides and spacing for distance casting.
I am building a Cts affinity X 7 wt and a MHX 6wt, and trying to figure out how to optimize the shootability of the rods.
So I hope you professionals can help me with Your thoughts on what kind of guides to use, and how to space them for best shooting abilities.

Thanks you for Your help!

Best regards
