i frequently build my own rods, but one thing i have never been quite clear on is concerning the spine in relation to the action of the rod. according to a rod building video i have you roll the tip section of the blank acrossed the ground to determine where the spine is. there are two spines, one bigger then the other. placing you r guides on one of the spines will give your rod a faster action then the other, so here is my question. if i roll the tip across the ground and find the biggest spine, that which is on the ground, to give the rod a faster action do i place the guides on the biggest spine or on the smaller spine. i don't know if this makes any sense, but i know what i am trying to say. with the bigger spine laying on the ground i always place my guides on the spine facing towards me.any help would be appreciated.
