There is no set in stone spacing as you will have to judge yourself where and how many guides to put on, I've rebuilt my f/s 13 footer but I ditched the guide on the butt section as it don't need one there as it's a stiffish butt, I put minima 4's on mine only £15 for a set of 7, 40mm to 16mm tip

Very expensive choice going for k guides lol , I'd strip the blank and just tape the guides on untill you're happy with the positions, I see no need for guides on the butt section as it don't bend that much unless you cast like Big Danny lol

My Supercasts have no guides on the butt section and line slap is not an issue, having a guide too close to the reel will cut your cast down unless it is huge lol, 50mm guides are hard to get now so it makes sense to move 40mm guides further away from the reel,

Pic of a six and bait mk II fs at my first attempt at casting over grass. Only 140m odd but a fair bit of bend going on. If you don't have a ring on the top of the butt section won't that mean the line is inside the curve of the rod and more likely to wrap a ring?
